HCC Student Parents

HCC students may be eligible for a number of resources to help with child care costs: Pell grants and student loans If a student receives Pell and/or student loans and there is money remaining after paying tuition and book charges, that money can be transferred to the student's child care account to help cover child care expenses for the semester. HCC Foundation Scholarship The deadline to apply for this scholarship is Dec. 1 for the spring semester. While this scholarship covers HCC tuition, this funding supplements Pell and other sources to free up money that can be used for child care. Job Training Student Resources If a student is eligible for JTSR services, that student can apply for a weekly stipend to help with child care costs. Child Care Subsidy Child care subsidy (vouchers) from the Maryland State Department of Education (formerly administered by DSS).
