Family Friendly Policies for Grant Recipients

The National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health have developed a series of family friendly policies for grants recipients. Policies include funds for family related expenses, paid time off, funds for replacing a researcher on childcare leave, extension of grants to accommodate birth or adoption, among others. These benefits vary according to qualifying grants.
