The TEACH Grant program was created to assist students that are seeking degrees in high-need fields and anticipate teaching in those fields at the secondary or elementary level. Students will be eligible to receive up to $3,708 per year, but must meet the following conditions: Enroll in a qualifying master's degree or post-baccalaureate teacher certificate program Complete a FAFSA Be a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen Enroll in coursework necessary to begin a career in teaching or plan to complete such coursework Score above the 75th percentile on a college admissions test or maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 3.25 Complete a TEACH Grant Agreement to Serve Students that choose to participate in this program must agree to serve as a full-time teacher in a high-need field in a public or private elementary or secondary school that serves low-income students. If a student fails to meet the requirements of the service obligation, the TEACH Grant will convert to a Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan. The student will then be required to repay the loan to the U.S. Department of Education. The student will also be charged interest from the date the grant was disbursed. Students may review more information about the obligations at www.teachgrant.ed.gov. Renewal Eligibility Requirements If you are interested in continuing your eligibility for the TEACH Grant program, you must meet the below eligibility requirements. Failure to do so will result - according to federal regulations - in your no longer being eligible to receive the TEACH Grant.
