Attention ODU Student Parents

The Child Care Access Means Parents in School (CCAMPIS) program is accepting applications for the fall, spring and summer semesters. The CCAMPIS program is a federally funded program from the US Dept. of Education to support Pell Grant eligible student parents in completing their degree through access to high-quality childcare programs and the provision of stipends to offset the cost of childcare. The CCAMPIS ODU program gives top-priority to military-affiliated or first-generation student parents with young children.

Students accepted into this program will be offered spaces at the ODU Children's Learning and Research Center (CLRC) and will be provided with stipends to assist with the cost of childcare. Stipends range from 85-95% of the full-time and part-time student tuition rates in the CLRC and covers the annual registration fee.

FUNDING IS LIMITED! Apply now! Questions can be directed to Dr. Angela Eckhoff at aeckhoff@odu.edu or 757-683-6263.
