Child Care Scholarships

Students with financial need can apply for a scholarship that helps pay for child care. Scholarships are available for the WCC Children’s Center or licensed off-campus child care centers. The Student Resource Center at WCC awards the scholarships.

The application deadlines* are:

  • July 15 for Fall Semester
  • November 15 for Winter Semester
  • April 15 for Summer Semester

*If the deadline falls on a day the college is closed, applications will be accepted the next business day.
After these deadlines, make an appointment with a case manager to see if other funding is available. 

The scholarship helps pay for child care while the student is attending classes at WCC. It does not cover study time. Please contact us about coverage for off-campus child care during COVID-19. 

The scholarship is only good for the semester awarded. Students who want ongoing assistance need to reapply for the scholarship each semester.

To apply for the scholarship, you must:

Scholarship recipients must meet WCC’s Satisfactory Academic Progress standard and income guidelines.
