Child Care Assistance Means Parents In School (CCAMPIS) Grant

CCAMPIS stands for Child Care Assistance Means Parents In School. It is a grant from the Department of Education that can help subsidize the cost of childcare.
Childcare Provider List

Tiny T-Birds Scholarship: Coming Soon! A scholarship meant to help support student parents at the new SUU child care (opening Fall 2020).

Am I eligible?

Probably! As long as you are currently enrolled at SUU and have (and must maintain) a cumulative GPA of 2.3, you can fill out an application to determine how much subsidy you may be eligible for. You also must only use a licensed childcare provider (see list above). Eligibility is based on a sliding scale that's based on several factors, such as the number of credit hours you are taking, the number and age of your children, and financial need. 

How do I apply?

Complete the application below. The application must be filled out COMPLETELY. After your application is accepted, you and your selected childcare provider MUST fill out a 980 Form, and turn it into our office: in person (ST 172), via email (nontrads@suu.edu), or fax (435-865-8758). 

How does CCAMPIS work?

Once we receive your application, we then determine the percentage of the cost we can cover, according to our sliding scale. The amount covered is dependent on your need and how much funding we have available. If you are accepted into the program, you will be contacted via email about your award. We will also contact you if you are ineligible or are put on a waiting list. If your application is late, you are automatically put on the waiting list until funding is available.

Then what?

Once you are accepted, there are a few requirements you must follow in order to be funded.

  1. You MUST maintain a cumulative 2.3 or higher GPA. If you do not, you will be put on probation, and could be removed from the CCAMPIS grant.
  2. You must participate in one of the following workshop series. There are a variety of topics available. If you fail to attend a workshop, you will NOT receive funding for the following semester.
    1. Attend ALL 8 REP (Relationship Enrichment Program) Workshops at SUU Tuesdays from 1:00pm to 1:50pm (3/10, 3/31, 4/7) in the Escalante Room in the Student Center. A few courses will be located in a different room in the Student Center. We will update you if so.
    2. "Strong Parents, Stable Children" Saturday Course: 3/28/20 from 9:00am to 4:00pm in Cedar Breaks A in the Student Center.  
  3. Remain in good financial standing with your childcare facility.

 

FOR SUMMER 2020 SEMESTER ONLY:
