TEACH Grants


The Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education Grant Program (TEACH) provides up to $4,000 a year in grants to students who are willing to commit to teach full time in a high-need field at a low income school.

If you do not complete the four-year teaching obligation, this grant will convert to an unsubsidized direct loan.

To avoid repaying the TEACH Grant you must:

  • Complete the requirements outlined in the TEACH Grant Agreement to Serve.
  • Be a highly-qualified, full-time teacher.
  • Obtain an education degree in a high-need subject area.
  • Complete four years of teaching within eight years of graduation at a school serving low-income students.
