The Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant is a non-need-based grant that provides up to $4,000 per year to students who are enrolled in an eligible program. The student agrees 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. The student must sign a service agreement to this affect, and complete all required counseling prior to receiving a TEACH Grant.
