The Child Care Access Means Parents In School (CCAMPIS) grant is a federal program of the U.S. Department of Education that assists student parents with the cost of keeping their children enrolled in quality, accredited, and conveniently located child care services. Our program provides partial funding to students who are eligible to receive Pell grants and are in pursuit of post-secondary education.
CCAMPIS participants are required to attend ONE parent orientation during the awarded semester. Additional parent workshops/events are offered each semester and count towards Parent Points. Collected points are used to apply for the CCAMPIS Engaged Student Parent Scholarship.
