Everyone is struggling with the realities of flattening the COVID-19 curve. In support of our mama's the AMF is instituting a special covid-19 granting cycle. Our covid-19 grants are designed to be small awards to alleviate immediate needs caused by covid-19 restrictions.
To apply for a special covid-19 grant then please directly email Cindy@academicmamas.org.
In your email please include the following information:
1. Your name, contact information, and self-declaration* of being an academic mama.
2. A paragraph describing your need (<250 words).
3. A paragraph describing how covid-19 has caused or exacerbated hardships related to being an academic mama (<250 words).
4. Funding request amount (<$500).
*AMF does not discriminate based on race/ethnicity, citizenship, disability, gender or sexual identity, or economic status. For the purposes of our grants an academic mama is therefore defined as a self-identified mother, regardless of sex assigned at birth, or biological parenthood status, who is either a student or academic professional.
