Federal TEACH Grant

The Federal TEACH Grant provides up to $4,000 a year to students that are planning to teach in particular high-need fields. In order for a student to receive this grant, they must agree to complete a service obligation by teaching in one of these fields and at a school that serves low-income students. If the teaching obligation is not completed, the grant will convert to a Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford loan with interest charged from the date the original grant was received.
