SGA Offering Child Care Grants to Students

Lexington, KY. (Sept. 12, 2017) — 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.

“Being a full-time student while caring for a child can be very financially demanding, so SGA wants to alleviate some of the financial burden for our students,” said Bharath Chithrala, Academic and Student Affairs Committee chair.

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

To apply, visit here. The application deadline is 5 p.m., Oct. 25.

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.
