Summer 2020 Childcare Grant Program

The Graduate School recognizes that the significant challenges of raising children while attending graduate school have become even more daunting during the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic. Schools, childcare centers, and camps have closed, leaving graduate student parents with the double burden of caring for children at home while also working toward their degrees. 
 
TGS is pleased to offer a Summer 2020 childcare grant to enable student parents to take advantage of available childcare options. This Summer 2020 grant is a one-time supplement to The Graduate School’s graduate student childcare grant program. It is designed to offer extra childcare support to funded TGS student parents wherever they may be residing, domestically or internationally, during this challenging time.  
 
To apply for a Summer 2020 childcare grant, please complete this application form no later than Thursday, July 9, 2020 in order to receive the childcare grant funds on the July pay date. As a reminder, children up to the age of 13 now qualify for the childcare grant (limit two children per family).
 
The regular TGS childcare grant program, which offers grants for the Fall, Winter, and Spring Quarters, will once again resume in September. Please email AJ Delaire in TGS at ajdelaire@northwestern.edu with any questions.
