The Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant program provides up to $4,000 per year in non-need-based grants for undergraduate students who must, in turn, teach full-time in high-need subject areas for at least four years at schools that serve students from low-income families. Students may receive up to $16,000 for undergraduate study. Part-time students are eligible, but the maximum grant will be reduced.
Current legislation has identified the following as meeting the definition of a high-need subject area for the TEACH Grant Program: Bilingual Education and English Language Acquisition; Foreign Language; Mathematics; Reading Specialist; Science; and Special Education. Failure to complete the teaching obligation will cause the TEACH Grant to be permanently converted to a Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan with interest accrued from the date the grant funds were first disbursed. Once a grant is converted to a loan, it cannot be converted back to a grant.
