The costs of education – both direct and indirect costs – are often the reason why education programs may not be utilised. The external association SOROPTIMIST INTERNATIONAL - Club Dornbirn awards funding for child care costs subject to certain conditions. This funding supports parents and primarily single parents who would not otherwise be able to complete their studies without professional child care.
The support can be requested for the child care costs and/or meal contributions at the child care centre.
The decision on the provision of support is taken by the institutions involved. This decision primarily takes into account the personal and financial situation of the legal guardians. The amount of the grant is determined by the number of approved applications and the funding available. Each grant is provided for one year, with no entitlement of support in subsequent year(s). The grant is transferred directly to “Verein der Vorarlberger Tagesmütter” (Vorarlberg Association of Caregivers) and is credited each month. The grants are suspended if the requirements are no longer met. There is no right to legal recourse.
The application deadline is 15th June. A decision on the application is provided in mid-July.
Please send the application as well as enclosures by post or email to:
