Early Childhood Education and Care Opportunities
Scholarships provided to Southeast Community College students by the U.S. Department of Education CCAMPIS
Pell-eligible SCC student parents with children ages 6 weeks through 12 years of age are eligible to apply. The grant will assist in reduction of tuition for child care and early childhood education, school age Summer camps, and/or school age mini-camps.
Southeast Community College Child Development Center has been awarded the CCAMPIS (Childcare Access Means Parents in School) Grant from the United States Department of Education. Pell-eligible SCC students who are awarded the grant will receive a reduction in early childhood education and care tuition, up to 50%. Applicants will be selected based on need and space availability. Students receiving this grant are responsible for providing the CDC with an annual PELL eligibility letter, and schedules and grades after each semester. Once the student is receiving assistance, they will remain eligible for assistance if they remain Pell-eligible, continue progressing in their schooling, and comply with the Center requirements. Grant funding limitations may restrict the number of eligible student’s participation.
This grant supports SCC student parents attend school, and successfully graduating, by reducing financial barriers and assisting with the cost of quality early childhood education and care. SCC serves a large number of Pell-eligible student parents who may benefit from financial assistance to help cover the cost of child care.
