SWASP

Fall 2017 applications now available*

* SWASP funds for Fall 2017 are limited and we will not be able to accommodate all SWASP applications in the FAll semester. Applications identifying the greatest financial need will be given priority. Strength of match between an applicant’s academic program and his/her identified career goals, including potential skills development (as demonstrated through the completion of the required Career Objectives), will also be considered to determine funding priorities. Please note that demonstrating these priority areas in your application does not guarantee approval. We understand that the need for the SWASP program is critical for all student parents and appreciate your understanding at this time.

IMPORTANT NOTE: When you fill out the application form, print it off and submit to SWASP coordinator at UC4002. Click here to access the application form. (DO NOT SAVE AND EMAIL THIS FORM).
Please ensure to complete ALL sections of the application.
