UC Davis news – Childcare reimbursement for all graduate students

Dear Graduate Program Chairs,

I am pleased to announce that beginning Fall 2013, the current childcare reimbursement available to Academic Student Employees (ASEs: TA, Reader, AI, Tutor) will be available to all graduate students. Endorsed by the Chancellor and Provost, the new Graduate Student Childcare Reimbursement Program will provide up to $600 per quarter (including summer) to all graduate students to help defray the childcare costs for dependents aged 0-12 years. The existing reimbursement program was available to graduate students only during the terms they were appointed as ASEs and only for childcare expenses incurred for dependents aged 0-5 years. This expanded program will serve many more graduate student parents thanks to support from the Chancellor and Provost.

To minimize confusion and simplify the process for student parents, administration of programs providing financial assistance for childcare expenses will be consolidated to one access point under the campus WorkLife program, which currently manages the UC Davis Student Parent Child Care Subsidy.  More information will be distributed in the coming months. Until Fall, reimbursements should continue to be processed for ASEs as they have been in the past–through the hiring unit employing the graduate student.

Please share this information with students and faculty in your program.

Sincerely,

Jeff Gibeling
