Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF) Childcare Grant

Award: Varies; Deadline:

The University of Kansas Student Senate allocates funds from the Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF) for programs on the Lawrence campus. FAS must apply for funds to support the childcare grant on an annual basis.


Undergraduates, Graduate/Professinal/Law students, and graduate international students (F-1 or J-1) enrolled in a degree-seeking program on the Lawrence campus.

How to apply:
  1. File theĀ FAFSA. International students must complete the International Student Need Analysis Worksheet (ISNAW). FAS recommends you file by the March 1st KU priority date to be considered for limited funded aid programs.
  2. List the University of Kansas school code (#001948) on the FAFSA.
  3. Submit a complete Childcare Grant and Budget Adjustment Request form, which is available beginning the first week of September each academic year. The priority date for completing the request is typically during the third week of September. Equal priority will be given to all complete applications received by the priority date. Childcare costs are added to the estimatedĀ Cost of Attendance (COA).

If you miss the priority date for requesting the grant, you may still submit the request form in order to have your COA adjusted (and to be waitlisted for the grant if funds become available). If you indicate an interest in loans on the form and you have remaining federal loan eligibility, you will be awarded additional loans. Once grant funds have been disbursed each year, the grant application is replaced by the Childcare Budget Adjustment Request form, which will be available for the remainder of the academic year. If you are attending KU during the summer, a separate budget adjustment request must be submitted to the FAS office.
