Child care costs in the U.S. can be a significant expense, especially for infant care.
Students in an undergraduate, graduate, or professional program may be eligible for the Child Care Tuition Assistance Program (CCTAP) – UW-Madison’s main child care tuition award – which is designed to cover 30-40% of child care for children under 4-years-old.
Smaller awards are available for school-aged children or for families with one stay-at-home parent. CCTAP is open to U.S. citizens, international students, and permanent residents (green-card holders). Faculty, staff, and post-doctoral or research fellow students are not eligible.
