UAW Local 4121 has negotiated a benefit with the University as part of the collective bargaining agreement that provides childcare assistance for Academic Student Employees (ASEs) who do not receive funds from the Childcare Assistance Program (CAP).
Under this program ASEs may receive up to $600 ($650 starting July 1, 2013 and $700 starting July 1, 2014) per quarter of assistance to offset eligible childcare expenses. A maximum of $25,000 will be distributed to support ASE awards during the 2012-13 year (this increases to $37,500 in 2013-14 and $40,000 in 2014-15). The ASE childcare program will be administered by the Student Parent Resource Center.
ASEs who have not yet applied for the CAP and ASEs who had their applications rejected can continue to submit applications until the funding runs out. ASEs who have already been awarded the childcare benefit do not need to re-apply.
If you are a parent with a current ASE appointment, and wish to apply for this benefit, YOU MUST SUBMIT AN APPLICATION
FOR THE CHILDCARE ASSISTANCE PROGRAM AS WELL AS A COMPLETED 2012-13 FAFSA
If, pursuant to this application, you are given a childcare assistance award, you will not be considered for the ASE benefit. If you have not been given an award, your application will be automatically considered for the ASE benefit. UW will automatically disburse to ASEs as many awards as are available, up to the maximum of $35,000 for the 2012-13 year.
Please contact UAW Local 4121 with any questions about this exciting new program. If you have specific questions about your application please contact Diana Herrmann at the Student Parent Resource Center firstname.lastname@example.org
or telephone 206.543.1041
Sick Child Care Services
ASEs now have access to the University’s Sick Child Care Services for mildly sick children. ASEs pay a one-time $5 registration fee and then the University covers the service after that. For more information, visit the University of Washington Sick Child Care Services .
