TEACH Grant/Loan

Federal funding is available to students who are

completing coursework necessary to begin a career

in teaching mathematics, science, a foreign language,

special education, or as a reading specialist or other

“high-need” fields as determined by the U.S. Depart-

ment of Education. Student must have at least a 3.25

GPA to be eligible for the award. For this award to be

a grant, the student must work as a highly qualified

teacher at a Title I school in one of the specified

subject areas designated by the U.S. Dept. of Ed.

If the student does not teach for at least four years

within eight years of completing their program, the

award will convert to a Direct Unsubsidized Loan

originally disbursed. For more information, go to
