The grants will be given as a reimbursement for expenses. If requests exceed available funding, preference will be given to students and early career attendees who are presenting at the meeting.
Deadline for applications is March 27, 2017.
Apply via the Child Grant Application Site.
Notifications will go out by April 10, 2017.

As a service to SIAM attendees, SIAM has made arrangements for in-room child care. All guests who are interested in this service must call Camp Snowbird at (801) 933-2256, or e-mail the camp at [email protected]. Please sign up by April 13, 2017, to ensure that a sitter is available.
**Please remember to mention you are with SIAM in order for Snowbird to gather the correct information.**
The fees are as follows:
In room child care is $22/hour with a three-hour minimum. Each additional child is $2/hr, four child maximum per sitter. After four children, a second babysitter is required and rate starts over. For example: 8 children would be $56/hour with two caregivers ($28/hour for 4 children).
Camp Snowbird Hourly Center may be available for children over the age of 2 at $105/day upon request. All children must be at least four years old and potty trained. Camp Snowbird requires at least six children to book in order for Camp to open during the off season. Please contact Camp Snowbird at [email protected] or call directly at (801) 933-2256 by April 13, 2017, if you are interested in the camp.
We can also arrange for children’s activities, evening events, and special group rates upon request. Ask to speak with the Director, Cidney Judkins.
