Student-Parent Resources

Carolina Student Parents Association (SPA): Provides resources, support, avenues for advocacy, and social networking opportunities to pregnant and parenting UNC students, postdoctoral fellows and medical residents. Visit the Facebook page for information. Note: this group is different from the Carolina Parents Association, which is for parents of current Carolina students.

Parenting@UNC website: Created for UNC student, faculty and staff parents and parents-to-be. This website provides a collective web space for UNC parents to obtain resources on pregnancy, prenatal care, student leave and academic policies, lactation, childcare, and family-friendly activities.

    • Children must be under 12 years old.
    • All scholarships must be used in 4- or 5-star licensed child care facilities.
    • Scholarships cover a portion of child care costs, and parents must pay a portion based on a percentage of their income.
    • Student scholarships are awarded for a single school term with the opportunity to renew based on continued eligibility and funding.
    • Income eligibility is based on income from all sources, including student aid (with a deduction for the cost of tuition).
Qualifying students interested in a UNC-sponsored child care scholarship should call Child Care Services Association at (919) 403-6950, ask to speak with a Family Support Counselor, and identify that they would like to be placed on the scholarship waiting list.
