hi all,

In case you were counting on the dependent care fund for travel with
your baby, you should know that they might limit it to just tenured
faculty and post-docs (see email from Fiona Chin below).

Why are graduate students always screwed over?

Dear Irene,

I received your Dependent Care Fund application, and I wanted to let
you know that the next review period isn't scheduled until September.
Also, as this was the program's first pilot year, the Review Committee
is currently assessing refinements to the program before next year,
including the possibility of limiting the eligibility to tenure-track
faculty and postdoctoral fellows.

The program is still in its experimental, pilot phase (through AY09),
and we are doing our best to structure a successful program and gather
data at this point.

I will certainly be back in touch regarding the Committee's final
decision regarding program eligibility for this academic year.
