SGA Offers Childcare Grants

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 14, 2017) — The University of Kentucky Student Government Association (UKSGA) offers child care grants every semester to part-time and full-time UK students, both at the undergraduate and graduate level. To be eligible, a student must have a child enrolled in a day care or after school program that requires a weekly or monthly payment.

“We understand the importance of receiving an education, and we want to lessen the financial burden of caring for a child while being a college student,” said Nicole Mattingly, Academic and Student Affairs Committee chair.

If awarded, the grant will go to myUK through the student’s account. This is a one-time grant with applications available each semester.

To apply, visit here. The application deadline is March 5.

The mission of the UKSGA is to represent all undergraduate, graduate and professional students enrolled at the university. UKSGA exists to increase student influence over academic policy, provide necessary student services, protect and expand student substantive and procedural rights, and to better represent the student body in relations with the faculty, administration, Board of Trustees and the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
