Hi everyone,

I just received the following email indicating that GSAS is ending the
program to assist with day care tuition.  I don't know if there's anything
that can be done about this.  Does anyone have a sense of how these
decisions might be reversed?

Dear Meredith,

It is with considerable regret that we write to inform you that the Doctoral
Student Pilot Child Care Scholarship Program will not be renewed for Fiscal
Year 2011. As a result we will not be accepting applications for the coming
year. As you know, this program was a pilot, initially approved for three
years and then extended for a fourth. Although the pilot provided
significant financial support to some doctoral student parents, it is not
possible to continue the program in its current form.

A working group that includes the Office of Work/Life, representatives of
the Office of Faculty Development and Diversity, and the Graduate School of
Arts and Sciences is actively exploring new strategies to support doctoral
student parents.

If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to email Sarah
Bennett-Astesano (sarah_bennett-astesano at harvard.edu).

We also have the Graduate Students Parents email list that can be accessed
through the Child Care website at harvard (
