The Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant Program provides grants of up to $2,000 per semester to students who intend to teach in a public or private elementary or secondary school that serves students from low-income families. Student eligibility for the TEACH Grant will be based on academic standing, major, and course requirements. Other TEACH Grant requirements include: Counseling & Service Agreement and TEACH Grant Certification. By signing the Service Agreement, the student must complete their service obligation, or their grant will be converted to a Direct Unsubsidized Loan.
