The Student Child Care Grant Program assists Cornell students with covering the costs of eligible child care, including infant and toddler child care, pre-school/pre-K care, summer camp programs for school-age children, and before- and after-school care for children ages 13 and younger. Cornell students can receive a taxable grant each year based on grant funds available, the students’ annual household income and the ages and number of children in care.
The program has been expanded to include a Spring 2017 application cycle. All undergraduate and graduate and professional students who did not receive a grant in Fall 2016 and meet eligibility requirements are encouraged to apply.
The application is available Cornell University Student Child Care Grant Subsidy – Spring 2017.

In August 2015 funding for the Student Child Care Grant Program in 2015-16 increased from $100,000 to $250,000. More information.
