Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant

The Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant program provides grants to students who intend to teach in a high-need area in a public or private elementary school that serves students from low-income families. The award can be as much as $4,000* per year ($2,000 per semester) to full-time students.

TEACH Grant recipients must complete their Agreement To Serve (ATS) and TEACH Grant Counseling annually. The ATS is an agreement to teach for at least four full years within eight years of finishing their teacher preparation program, and to teach high-need subjects in designated schools that serve low-income students.

Failure to complete the service agreement or changing majors to an ineligible degree program will cause the TEACH Grant to be permanently converted to an unsubsidized Federal Direct Loan with interest accruing from the date the TEACH Grant was first disbursed.

For a list of the BW approved degree programs review this document.

Visit the U.S. Department of Education's TEACH Grant website for more information.
