SGA Offers Child Care Grants

LEXINGTON, Ky.  (March 24, 2015) — Each semester University of Kentucky Student Government offers child care grants to students who need financial assistance for day care service for their children. These grants were created to help students with children further their education with less financial stress. Child care grants are available for part-time and full-time students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. 

To be eligible, a student must be enrolled at the University of Kentucky in the semester they apply for the grant and their children must be enrolled in a daycare or after school program that requires a weekly or monthly payment.

This is a one-time grant with applications available each semester. The grant will be credited through myUK to a student's account. If both parents are UK students, it should be noted on the application, but it is not necessary for both parents to apply.

The selection committee reviews numerous applications and asks applicants to be as detailed in their responses as possible. Once the online application process is begun the application must be completed in its entirety. It cannot be saved.

The deadline to apply for a child care grant is noon Wednesday, April 1. No late applications will be accepted.
