If you are a Harvard-paid and benefits-eligible employee of Harvard University, you may be able to take advantage of one of several child care subsidies.

Harvard University child care scholarships are intended to assist eligible families with paying for in-home child care, family child care, group child care centers, after school child care or summer camps.

Please note

  • HUCTW the open enrollment for the Child Care Fellowship opens in early fall.  Keep an eye out for emails from HUCTW.
  • The HMS Supplemental Child Care Scholarship does NOT have a separate application process.  Just apply through HUCTW or Harvard University and your applicaiton will automatically be considered.
  • If you are an employee of one of the affiliated hospitals and receive your paycheck and benefits from that hospital, you should contact your Human Resources Office to find out if there is a child care subsidy you are eligible for.
