Family Care Assistance

ISNAMH is committed to being family friendly and providing an open and inclusive learning environment. We understand how family care responsibilities can make it difficult to fully participate in meetings. Therefore, we are proud to offer grants to help facilitate your participation to off-set caregiving expenses for dependent children or family members.


An ISNAMH Family Support Grant is a reimbursable allowance up to a maximum of $500 which can be applied towards expenses incurred by an attendee for the caregiving of dependent children or family members by another individual. Please note that if a grant is given, documentation of the caregiving expenses must be provided to ISNAMH.



ISNAMH attendees may apply if:

  1. Attending ISNAMH

  2. Only one caregiver from each family may apply for a grant

Priority will be given to attendees who are students, postdoctoral fellows, and early career scientists​
