Teach Grant

The Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant Program is a non-need based grant program that provides up to $4,000 per year to students who are enrolled in an eligible program and who agree to teach in a high-need field, at a low-income elementary or secondary school as a highly qualified teacher, for at least four years within eight years of completing the program for which the TEACH Grant is awarded.  The student must sign a service agreement to this effect, and complete all required counseling prior to receiving a TEACH Grant.
