Childcare support and reimbursement offered for MIT School of Science faculty.
School of Science faculty members below the level of full professor are eligible to receive up to $10,000 in reimbursements for child care expenses per year per pre-kindergarten-aged child. Reimbursements are funded jointly by the Department and the School. Please note that this benefit supplements and does not replace the standing Dependent Care Policies. FAQ For faculty with pre-existing agreements regarding childcare support, either this benefit or the previously negotiated benefit may be chosen (whichever is greater). Requests for reimbursement should be submitted to the human resources administrator for your academic department. Please include the names and date of birth (month and year) for children who are being covered under the program. Reimbursements will be funded in a 50/50 split between the department and the school. Please use cost object #1477129 for the School’s contribution. Reimbursement coincides with the fiscal year (July 1-June 30) and requests must be submitted within the fiscal year that expenses are incurred. For any questions, please contact the Dean’s Office Faculty Affairs team.
