Child Care Subsidy for Student Parents

Posted: August 13, 2012

The Office of Human Resources is pleased to announce the availability of child care subsidy funds to qualifying students parents for fall 2012.

Funds are available through the Child Care Access Means Parents in School Program awarded by the U.S. Department of Education.

The Office of Human Resources implements the Student Parent Child Care Subsidy Program at all Penn State campus locations. Our goal is to provide undergraduate and graduate (available at some locations) student parents with financial assistance for safe, quality child care thereby enabling them to achieve their academic goals.

Student parents also may receive financial assistance for sick and emergency care, summer child care, and care during finals and mid-term periods. Qualifying student parents may utilize this subsidy to assist in child care costs at licensed child care centers and family home providers in their communities. Please see qualifications in the application form.

Questions and detailed information about the Penn State Student Parent Child Care Subsidy Program can be directed to Stephanie L. Zezzo in the Office of Human Resources at (800) 746-6759 or
