TEACH Grant Program

Through the College Cost Reduction and Access Act of 2007, Congress created the Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher (TEACH) Education Grant Program to provide grants of up to $4,000 per year to students who intend to teach in a high-need field at a public or private elementary or secondary school that serves students from low-income families.

To discover the need-to-know basics, check out the TEACH Grant fact sheet or visit the Federal TEACH Grant program Web site to learn more.
