ChildCare Grant

Montana State University Bozeman has received a Child Care Access Means Parents in School Program (CCAMPIS) grant. Part of the funds are to be used to support Gallatin College, undergraduate, and graduate student parents by helping pay a portion of their childcare expenses. If awarded, the dollars are directly sent on the student’s behalf to the licensed childcare program. This way, the award does not impact the student’s financial aid package. Graduate students and international students can receive this childcare grant. Hence, we require all applicants to submit a FAFSA which we will use for the income eligibility. International students will not be negatively impacted by other forms of financial aid by submitting a FAFSA. International students should enter "non-resident" within your FAFSA application. Also note, the FAFSA information is not shared in any way with immigration.

Applications will be reviewed in the order they are received to determine eligibility. Awards will be made for the current semester only, beginning in the month you apply. Award amounts will be made as funds allow. 

-Childcare can be center or home-based, but must be licensed through the State of Montana

-Child must be under the age of 5 

-The MSU Bozeman student must be enrolled in classes, and Pell eligible as determined by the FAFSA
