Parent and Caregiver Support: A Resource Panel for Graduate Student Parents, Caregivers, and Parents-to-be

February 16, 2023, 11:30 am to 1:00 pm EST

Calling all graduate student parents, caregivers and parents-to-be! Have you been looking for resources that are available to you?

Are you interested in:

  • Scholarships
  • Fellowships
  • Child-friendly study rooms
  • Lactation rooms on campus
  • Child care subsidies
  • Other child care and caregiver resources

If the answer is yes, this event is definitely for you!

Join us for a joint Zoom session with campus partners from CEW+, the Financial Aid Office, and the Work-Life Resource Center. We will be discussing resources on finances, funding, physical spaces, and more!

There will be a full Q&A where you will get to ask university representatives the questions you have about support, resources, and guidance for graduate student parents, caregivers, and parents-to-be.

Featured Presenters:

  • Jessica Pelton, student caregiver coordinator at CEW+, will provide information about resources at CEW+ and resources for student parents and caregivers across campus.
  • Monet Tiedemann, a senior financial aid administrator, will talk about resources such as the childcare subsidy, budget reevaluation, emergency funds, and financial aid available to graduate student parents.
  • Amy Szczepanski of the Work-Life Resource Center will give an overview of child care resources, including the U-M Children’s Centers, Campus Child Care Homes, and Kids Kare, plus sites where students can search for licensed child care programs, or for caregivers to come to their home.
  • Erin Lane, scholarship program manager at CEW+, will provide information about scholarships, fellowships, and emergency funding offered through CEW+.
