In collaboration with the CCCC Feminist Caucus, CCCC is pleased to offer small grants of no more than $300 per attendee that can be used to offset the costs of dependent care expenses at the 2023 annual convention, or for other caregiving needs as described by the applicant. The grant is intended for caregivers, including those caring for children, a spouse, a parent, and/or any friend or family member who needs assistance with daily activities. Priority for these funds will be given to contingent faculty members, graduate students, and/or independent scholars without institutional support.
To apply for funds, please complete the application form by 11:59 p.m. ET on Monday, January 9, 2023.
The committee will review the applications submitted and will rank them, prioritizing the following criteria:
- Available funding for conference attendance
- Conference participation commitments
- How participation in the convention will advance the applicant’s personal and professional goals
- How the award will support applicant’s contributions to the profession and the CCCC organization
- How the grant will help with caregiving responsibilities
CCCC is pleased to offer small grants of no more than $300 to recipients. Applicants who have received funding from CCCC for another award or scholarship will not be considered. CCCC assumes no responsibility for any liabilities associated with dependent care or dependent care providers.
Selected recipients will be notified by the CCCC Feminist Caucus by January 30, 2023. Selected recipients will then work with the CCCC Liaison to submit paperwork required to receive funding. The award process will be completed in advance of the CCCC 2023 convention.
Procedures for Award Recipients
After the convention, grant recipients should submit a one-page summary indicating how the funding supported the recipient’s participation in convention activities. Please submit the funding report to Feminist Caucus Care Grants Coordinator Alex Hanson by March 17, 2023.
