Federal TEACH Grant
The Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant Program provides grants of up to $4,000 per year (up to a total of $8,000) to students 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. The award will be posted on HUB assuming full time registration and will be adjusted to current registration after semester census.
Students will be required to sign a service agreement and complete all required counseling prior to receiving a TEACH Grant. Failure to meet the service agreement requirements will result in all TEACH Grant funds being converted to a Direct Unsubsidized Loan, which will accrue interest from the date the funds were applied to the student’s account, and will need to be repaid.
