Hi all--I haven't talked with her yet but will keep trying.  However, it
does seem that grad students will see some scholarship money.  I will keep
you posted.

See her response below.

Christine:  There are provisions in the enhancements announced yesterday to
assist doctoral students. They may not be administered in exactly the same way
as are the child care scholarships that go to Harvard faculty and staff
(employees).  We are working through the details how to do in the best possible
way for doctoral students. Call me and I can fill you in.  I should be around
between 1:30 and 3:00 ~ if we don't connect, please leave me a number where you
can be reached.

Thanks, Mary Ann
