These grants are paid in addition to your main student finance and don’t normally have to be paid back, unless you leave your course early.

How to Apply for a Childcare Grant

Before you fill in this form, make sure you’ve completed your main application for student finance.

Complete this form to give Student Finance England your estimated childcare costs. We’ll use this information to work out how much Childcare Grant you can get. Any children you’re claiming Childcare Grant for must be financially dependent on you.
