Child Care & Housing Subsidy Program for Students

UA Life & Work Connections' (LWC) long-standing Student Child Care & Housing Subsidy Program ("Subsidy") supports student family life for undergraduates and graduate/professionals. In collaboration with campus partners, the Subsidy Program for currently enrolled students is designed to defray cost and customize the setting and location of their qualifying, school-related child care occurring in Arizona. Approved, student form submittals allow individuals to receive Subsidy Program awards through applicable student accounts, for qualifying child care expenses already incurred.‚Äč

LWC, the Graduate College, the Office of Scholarships & Financial Aid and Student Affairs wish you success this academic year. Collaborations with the Graduate and Professional Student Council also resulted in additional Subsidy funding this year. Graduate Assistants and Associates, please visit here for family-friendly programs and practices.
