Child & Dependent Care
Onsite Child Care
ASV is committed to having the annual meeting accessible to all interested virologists. For ASV 2023, ASV has contracted with KiddieCorp (kiddiecorp.com), a national firm that has provided onsite daycare for meetings of national organizations since 1986. KiddieCorp provided childcare at ASV 2022 in Madison, Wisconsin.
More information on hours, rates, and registration will be provided in January 2023.
ASVCares Grant for Dependent Care
ASV will provide grants to members attending the Annual Meeting to help offset the costs associated with dependent care during the Annual Meeting.
Applications require a statement of need and a budget justification. Awardees (trainees and faculty) may use the funds at their discretion – to bring a caregiver and the child to the meeting, provide dependent care at home during the meeting, etc. These grants will be awarded independently of other ASV travel awards.
Applications for ASVCares awards will open in January 2023.
*ASVCares grants cannot be used for onsite childcare through KiddieCorp, because the costs of onsite care through KiddieCorp are already partially subsidized by ASV.
