Individuals receiving MFIP at this time should contact their County Social Office of Higher Education to get additional information about child care assistance. Please head to the scholarship site to check the list of eligible institutions. Award is determined on the number of people in the student's household, the number of day care hours necessary to cover education and work obligations, the income of applicant and spouse, the availability of funding, the student's enrollment status.
