MSU-B Receives Grant

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Montana State University Billings received a $45,140 grant to support child care services for low-income students.

The awards are funded under the Child Care Access Means Parents in School (CCAMPIS) program for four years. MSU-Billings determines eligibility through the financial aid office. About 16 to 20 students can get full child care costs at the college's child enrichment center covered for each semester.

"We look back at our data of students who received the CCAMPIS award," said Dr. Stacy Klippenstein, MSU-Billings vice chancellor for student affairs. "It's amazing how many of them were able to be successful and graduate from the institution. And that's what we want. These are the students who need the assistance to graduate and if we can provide it for them and they graduate for us and them."

MSU-B's child enrichment center is run by Bright Horizons. They have their own curriculum for the kids to go through while they're at the center. MSU-B is one of the 58 institutions to get a grant from the U.S. Department of Education.
