COGS Childcare Endowment

The MSU Child Care Grant program, in the Office of Financial Aid,  provides funds to students with children to assist in meeting the cost of licensed child care during the school year.

For the MSU Childcare Grant Application and information, visit Financial Aid’s Website: 

COGS Childcare Endowment Funds:  For otherwise eligible graduate/professional students who apply for the MSU Child Care Grant but are ineligible to complete that application, COGS is pleased to be able to provide funds in coordination with OFA and The Graduate School to assist with a limited number of $500 awards per semester to help cover those situations.    Graduate/Professional students  who would like to apply for COGS Childcare Endowment funds should check the box on the MSU Child Care Grant application indicating your interest in being considered for the COGS Childcare Endowment. The COGS program is open to international graduate/professional students. Please note that students must be enrolled at least half time in a degree granting program and demonstrate financial need to be eligible for this program as well. Office of Financial Aid will determine eligibility.
