Rackham Graduate Student Professional Travel with Children Grant


Deadline: Ongoing. The Grant is intended to support Rackham graduate student parents who incur expenses while traveling with small children (under the age of 6) while attending conferences, workshops, meetings or other academic events as part of their scholarly research or in pursuit of professional career readiness both within and outside of academia. Requests may also include dependent care at home while the student is traveling, the cost of transporting the dependent, car seat/crib rental, and daycare charges. Students must certify that funds requested for dependent care are due to professional travel, and are above and beyond normal dependent care expenses (e.g. normal day care or care by a spouse/partner/other family member will not be covered).
