The Child Development Research Center (CDRC) at UNF has received the Child Care Access Means Parents in School Program (CCAMPIS) grant. This grant is offered by the US Department of Education and will last for 4 years from Fall 2010 to Summer 2014.
The CCAMPIS grant is available for undergraduate college parents with child care needs at UNF. Student-parents may be placed on a waiting list in the event a spot may become available. All CCAMPIS grant recipients must be an undergraduate student enrolled in at least 6 credit hours, be eligible for the Federal Pell grant. Presently enrolled children at CDRC will be given first priority. To apply for the CCAMPIS Grant, you can download the application ( CCAMPIS Application Form) or visit the CDRC's office to pick up a hard copy.

The CCAMPIS Grant has benefitted many of our students and here is what some of them had to say:
" I am so GRATEFUL for the night program and the CCAMPIS Scholarship! The night program allows me to pursue my goals and have my children in a safe, affordable environment on campus with me. As a single mother, I've found it to be challenging to work full time and go to school. The night program and the CCAMPIS Scholarship allowed me to overcome that challenge. For the first time ever in my attendance at UNF (I'm a senior), I was able to successfully attend school full time in the evening thanks to the night program! Ms. Erica and Ms. Patty were wonderful and they are terribly missed by my boys. They are so excited for the fall semester. Thank you for helping me to accomplish my educationals goals.

"I know a lot of people can relate when I say that as a mom, student and employee, it can be very difficult to focus on your studies if you have concerns over your child's daycare situation or the cost of it. When I got my son into the program at the CDRC, I knew I was getting him into one of the best centers for daycare and VPK in Duval County . I was informed that I would be allowed into the program without cost to me. I was so excited, this had a true impact. My son was now in a great school, without a financial burden. This was a tremendous help in allowing me to focus more on school. The staff and the teachers at the CDRC have been so wonderful and supportive to me and my son. They have become friends that are always on their toes, looking out for the best interests of my son and me. I will truly miss them when it is our time to go." --- Shontel Bodell
“As a single mother, a college education was as equally important as it was hard to achieve. Without the CCAMPIS Grant, I would not of had the flexibility or the financial means to obtain my degree.By decreasing the cost of child care, I was able to work less hours and study more. This allowed me to raise my GPA from a 2.6 to a 3.07. Receiving the CCAMPIS Grant not only helped to secure my future through education but also helped me to set an outstanding educational example for my son.” ---Alicia Mann
