Students parents to receive childcare support thanks to new grant

Seattle Central’s Student Support Programs received a $30,000 grant from the Women’s Funding Alliance to support student parents. The grant will allow the college to significantly reduce the high cost of childcare as a major barrier to low-income, underrepresented parents studying in STEM fields. The program goal is to create a cohort model where students will support one another as students and parents, and develop leadership skills that will increase their earning potential as they enter the workforce.
