I JUST WANTED to let you know about something that was factually incorrect in the article "Graduate Families: More universities are providing parental accommodation policies for graduate students" (C&EN, Jan. 12, page 39). Massachusetts Institute of Technology offers need-based financial aid for qualifying students, postdocs, and staff to be used for child care. Currently, this financial aid can be used only at one of the MIT child care centers, which are typically oversubscribed. However, several graduate students (myself included) take advantage of these major subsidies.
