Rice Family Fund Information

The Family Fund provides indispensable financial support for scientists visiting KITP for four weeks or more with young children. Often the costs of travel and longterm child care are too great to cover for early-career scientists on their own. To apply, our visitors simply fill out a questionnaire indicating their need and approximately how much assistance is required.

Drs. Ann and Myron Rice have generously endowed the Family Fund to ensure cost is never a barrier to scientific discovery
