Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant

What is it?

Through the College Cost Reduction Act, Congress created the Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant program that provides grants to students who intend to teach full time in a public or private elementary or secondary school that serves students from low-income families at least four of the eight years after their degree completion.  The application can be found under additional information listed below.

Who is eligible?

Undergraduate and graduate students admitted to the School of Education who plan to teach in a high need field at a low-income school for at least four of the eight years after their degree completion.  Students must have a cumulative GPA of 3.25 or received above the 75th percentile on one battery of a college admissions test (ACT or SAT) and maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)

Will I have to pay it back?

If you fail to complete the four year teaching obligation within eight years of completing or ceasing your program of study, your grant will convert to an Unsubsidized Direct Loan which will have to be repaid with interest accrued from the date the grant funds were first disbursed.  Once a TEACH Grant is converted to a loan, it cannot be converted back to a grant.  

If I am eligible, what is my next step?

Complete the TEACH Grant Application found below.  Return it to Student Financial Services or Bison Connection.  Further instructions will be sent to your NDSU e-mail account after the grant application has been processed.
