Federal TEACH Grant

Congress created the Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education Grant Program (TEACH) to provide grants of up to $4,000.00 per year for students who plan to teach in designated math, science, special education, language, and other high-need subject fields. Undergraduate students are not eligible for the TEACH Grant until after they have been admitted into Professional Education (this typically will be your junior year).

Please note: Elementary Education majors do not qualify for the TEACH Grant.


TEACH Grant Eligibility and Information

Please connect with the College of Education Advising Office if any of the expenses related to licensure are a financial burden. Together we can discuss potential resources to help you to complete your degree.
