Graduate Tuition & Aid
The federal TEACH grant comes through the College Cost Reduction and Access Act of 2007. Congress created the Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) grant program, which provides grants of up to $4,000 per year to students who are completing or plan to complete course work needed to begin a teaching career.
You must complete the TEACH grant counseling that explains the TEACH grant service obligation’s terms and conditions. You must complete counseling each year that you receive a TEACH grant.
You must also sign a TEACH grant agreement to serve in which you agree to (among other requirements) teach:
- In a high-need field.
- At an elementary school, secondary school, or educational service agency that serves students from low-income families.
- For at least four complete academic years within eight years after completing (or ceasing enrollment in) the course of study for which you received the grant.
