Federal TEACH (Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education) Conditional Grant Program (Archived)

The Federal Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education Grant (TEACH Grant) Program provides up to $4000 per year to students who are completing or who plan to complete coursework that is required to begin a career in teaching, and who agree to teach full-time for at least four years;

  • As a highly qualified teacher;
  • At a school servicing low-income students; and
  • In a high-need field

The four years of teaching must be completed within eight years after you complete or otherwise cease to be enrolled in the program for which you received a TEACH Grant. This teaching requirement is known as your TEACH Grant service obligation. The TEACH Grant is a "conditional" grant. Unlike other gift aid grants, if a student accepts a TEACH Grant but does not complete the four-year teaching requirement, the grant converts to an unsubsidized Federal Direct Loan which must be repaid with interest which accrues back to the first day that the grant was paid to the student.

Contact the Teacher Education department at your college for more information on the TEACH grant and to find out if you are eligible to apply for a TEACH grant.
