Student Government Offers Child Care Grants

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 1, 2015) — The University of Kentucky Student Government Association (SGA) is once again offering child care grants to part-time and full-time UK students, both at the undergraduate and graduate level. 

"The goal of these grants is to help any University of Kentucky student who is having to pay for child care while attending the university," said SGA Academic and Student Affairs Committee Chair Ben Childress. "SGA strives to enhance the overall student experience, assisting the student body in any way possible by providing necessary student services — child care grants is one of these services."

By helping students pay for child care services, Student Government hopes that UK students can further their education with less financial stress.  The grant will be credited to the student’s myUK account.

In order to qualify for a child care grant, a student must be enrolled at UK in the semester that they are applying for the grant.  The student’s child 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.
