The Child Development Grant program is administrated by the California Student Aid Commission (CSAC). The program is designed for students who are attending a California Community College or four-year institution and pursuing a Child Development permit to teach or supervise in licensed children's centers. Selected recipients attending a California Community College at least half-time are eligible to receive up to $1,000 each academic year. Prior to receiving an award payment, you must sign a service commitment Agreement to provide one full year of service in a licensed children's center for every year you receive the grant. You must also be making Satisfactory Academic Progress according to financial aid SAP standards.
