Childcare grants are available for part-time and full-time UK students, both at the undergraduate and graduate level, who need financial assistance for day-care service for their children.  To be eligible, a student must be enrolled at UK in the semester they apply for the grant and their children must be enrolled in a day-care or after school program that requires a weekly or monthly payment.  Childcare Grants were created to help UK students with children further their education with less financial stress. This is a one-time grant with applications available each semester. If both parents are UK students, please note this on the application, but it is not necessary for both parents to apply.

Spring 2018 applications will be available January 26th. The grant will be accredited through myUK to your student account.

The selection committee reviews numerous applications, so be as DETAILED in your responses as possible. This application cannot be saved once you begin, so it must be completed in its entirety. The deadline is March 5th, 2018 by 5 pm. No late applications will be accepted. Decisions will be made by April 8th, applicants will be notified no later than April 30th of their status. If additional paperwork is required you will be notified.

Any questions or concerns can be submitted to Bharath Chithrala, Academic and Student Affairs Committee Chair, at
