Financial support for young parents scientists (PhD & postdoc)

You have a baby of less than 18 months for whom you are the main carer in the household and plan to attend a scientific conference taking your baby along?

PhD students and postdocs at EPFL can receive up to CHF 1’500 financial support to cover travel costs (train, flight, and hotel) of a baby-sitter who accompanies them and their baby younger than 18 months at a scientific conference or on a research stay.

Alternatively, if the conference organizer offers a babysitting service which is billed to participants, the costs involved can also be covered.

Please note that the maximal amount of CHF 1’500 does not apply per event, but covers the whole period until the baby reaches 18 months.
To request the financial support, please fill the online form and send a copy of the receipts to Chantal Mellier.
