Parenting Student Resource Program

The Parenting Student Resource Program at UW Bothell is specifically designed to support the needs of students who are parents and uplift them as they complete their degree. We also offer a basic needs pantry, quarterly Child Care Assistance Program awards to help with the cost of child care for parenting students, and information/referral resources through our partnership with the Health and Wellness Resource Center.

New Winter 2024: Parenting Student Resource Program is now a part of the Health and Wellness Resource Center!

Child Care Assistance Program

Child care assistance for UW Bothell parenting students

The Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) provides assistance to UW Bothell students in covering the costs of licensed childcare for their children (newborn – 12 years old) while enrolled in an eligible program of study. This award is funded jointly by Services & Activities fees and a federal CCAMPIS Grant through the Department of Education.
