Would you like to attend a SIGOPS-sponsored event, but cannot because the cost of child-care is prohibitive?

SIGOPS will fund grants for care child support to our members participating in our sponsored events. We will provide financial assistance to subsidize a variety of child-care options, including:

  • On-site child care at conferences arranged by the parent, including placing kids in a shared care facility or paying for babysitting expenses
  • Travel costs for a companion who provides child care, specifically for non-shared transportation costs such as airfare.
  • Travel costs for children between the ages of two and sixteen.
