If you plan to teach in a high-need field and in a low-income school, you need to learn about the Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant!
TEACH Grant recipients can receive up to $4,000 per year for four years as an undergraduate and two years as a graduate student.
Eligible graduate students must contact our office to request to have the TEACH Grant added to their financial aid offer
Due to federal sequestration, the maximum TEACH Grant is $3,772 for the 2023-24 academic year
