TEACH Grants

The Federal TEACH Grant Program provides up to $4,000 annually to undergraduate, post-baccalaureate and graduate students who agree to serve for at least four years as highly qualified teachers in public or not-for-profit elementary or secondary schools who serve students from low-income families.

Recipients must teach in a high-need field. The following fields are considered high-need:

  • Bilingual education
  • English language acquisition
  • Foreign languages
  • Mathematics
  • Reading specialist
  • Science
  • Special education

In addition to these fields, you can aceess a state-by-state list. If you want to be considered eligible based on a field from the state-by-state list, you will need to document to the Financial Aid Office what your goal is and how your current program will work to help you attain that goal.

It is important to note that those who do not successfully fulfill the service agreement will have their grant converted to a Federal Unsubsidized Stafford loan that accrues interest from the date the Federal TEACH Grant was received.
