New Susan Niebur Professional Development Fund and DPS Dependent Care Grants
July 16, 2013
Dear WIPS Community,
I am pleased to share that Susan Niebur’s legacy will live on in yet another fabulous way – through the newly established AAS DPS Susan Niebur Professional Development Fund. The first opportunity funded will be dependent care grants at the DPS meeting in Denver this October. See below for details about the dependent care grants, and also about the new Susan Niebur fund and how to contribute.
The AAS DPS Professional Development Subcommittee is pleased to open this year’s application cycle for the DPS Dependent Care Grant program.Up to $250 per applicant is available for DPS members to subsidize child, elder, or disabled dependent care during the DPS conference week (6-11 October 2013). Funds may be used either at the DPS meeting location or at home. Preference will be given to those presenting and those with the greatest financial need.To apply, please fill out the online form at http://aas.org/dps-45th-meeting/45th-dps-meeting-dependent-care by Sep. 2, 2013.
This program is sponsored by the new AAS DPS Susan Niebur Professional Development Fund. We thank Curt Niebur for granting permission to name this fund in honor of Susan, the DPS Committee and donors for their generous support to the program, and the DPS Professional Development Subcommittee and AAS for their work in making this come together.
