Grants for Graduates

  • Federal TEACH Grant

    Students participating in Master's degree programs in special education or teaching may qualify for a federal TEACH Grant. In return for receiving a TEACH Grant, a student agrees to serve:

    • As a highly-qualified full-time teacher in a high-need field in a public or private elementary or secondary school that serves low-income students and
    • For at least four academic years within eight calendar years of completing the program of study for which they received TEACH Grant funding.

    If a recipients fails to complete the service obligation, all amounts of TEACH Grants received will be converted to a Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loan, with interest charged from the date the TEACH Grant was originally disbursed, which will then be repaid to the U.S. Department of Education.
