Child Care Subsidy
This program was designed to help students with meeting the cost of licensed daycare.
To be considered for the Child Care Subsidy, a student must meet all of the following criteria:
- Be enrolled at least half-time in a University of Michigan-Ann Arbor degree program at either the undergraduate, graduate or professional level, or be enrolled in a non-degree program with a defined educational objective.
- Be the parent of a child 12 years old or younger or a child with special needs under the age of 19.
- Incur child care expenses from services provided by a licensed provider. Note: You may apply even if you are not currently using a licensed provider. If you are awarded a subsidy, you must be willing to change to a licensed care provider within 30 days of the beginning of the term for which you are awarded the subsidy.
- Demonstrate financial need for this subsidy.
- Be making satisfactory academic progress, as defined by the University of Michigan.
- Utilize child care services because you are a single student, or if married, because your spouse is either a student or employed outside the home for a minimum of 30 hours per week. You may be asked to document your spouse's employment or student status.
