University Staff Child Care Grant

This private fund provides one-time  financial support to permanent full-time university staff employees who need assistance for child care with the intention of supporting, retention, campus climate and emergency assistance. Priority is given to employees:

  1. with lower incomes and higher child care expenses, especially those with infants, and/or
  2. in cases where discretionary one time funding will provide immediate assistance in dealing with an unexpected event that affects the family’s ability to cover child care costs.

Funding for the University Staff child care grants is made possible by individual donations.

Employees should refer to the application for eligibility guidelines. Applications are accepted throughout the year. Grants are always awarded based on fund availability and family need. Typically 4-6 awards are granted each year with awards averaging $500.
