STUDENT PARENT PROGRAMS
College students with children — student parents — make up more than 25 percent of the college population in the U.S., and often need supports to help them balance their caregiving and financial responsibilities with work, study time, and class. There are many ways to assist student parents and great examples of strategies and programs that can help them.
This Student Parent Program Finder links community leaders, college and university administrators, and student parents themselves with programs that offer supports such as child care, networking opportunities, and help paying expenses. For a summary of the range of supports that can help student parents see Prepping Colleges for Parents: Strategies for Supporting Student Parent Success in Postsecondary Education.
