The Federal Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant program was created to fill the teacher shortages in high-need fields. The TEACH Grant is the first federal grant program that requires a service agreement.
The Federal TEACH Grant allows up to $4,000 per year for full-time students on both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Funds can only be used for your first bachelor's or graduate degree. Amounts are prorated according to enrollment levels per term.
Additionally, Congress passed the Budget Control Act of 2011, which has caused federal budget cuts to this program, known as a “sequester.” For the 2018-19 award year, students with TEACH grant funds first disbursed on or after October 1, 2018 and prior to October 1, 2019 will see a reduction of 6.2% from their originally approved award amount. More details about sequestration can be found here.
All undergraduate programs must lead to licensure in order to qualify.

Apply for TEACH Grant
Complete the TEACH Application in ASIST.
You will only see the TEACH Grant application as an option if you are in an eligible program. If you meet all of the requirements, your award will be packaged when the application review is finished.
Next, you need to sign an "Agreement to Serve" contract with the federal government and complete the TEACH Grant federal entrance counseling before the funds are disbursed to your account.
In exchange for receiving a Federal TEACH Grant, you must agree to serve as a full-time teacher for at least 4 of the 8 years following the completion of your program. You must also teach in a high-need field in a school that serves low-income students.
If you do not complete the service obligation, the U.S. Department of Education will convert all Federal TEACH Grant funds that you received to a Federal Direct Unsubsidized Student Loan. You will then have to repay the loan and will be charged interest from the date the grant(s) disbursed.
