TEACH Grant

The TEACH Grant provides assistance of up to a maximum of $3,724 annually if disbursed on or after October 1, 2016 and before October 1, 2017 to students whose intention is to teach in a "high need field (subject matter)" and intend to teach in a public or private elementary or secondary school that serves students from low income families. Unlike most need-based grant programs, the TEACH Grant is available to graduate students as well as undergraduates.

Requirements
  1. As a recipient, students agree to teach a "high need field" full-time and for a minimum of four years within eight years following program completion. The TEACH Grant will remain a grant if recipients meet specific criteria. If recipients do not meet the criteria, the TEACH Grant converts to a Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan with interest calculated to the initial disbursement date(s).
     
  2. In addition to completing the FAFSA, candidates must be a U.S. citizen or an eligible non-citizen and be enrolled in coursework necessary to begin a career in teaching.

The University of Michigan-Dearborn currently considers students who are of senior status as an undergraduate or graduate students with a high grade point average and admitted to a degree granting program in the College of Education, Health, and Human Services (CEHHS) and pursuing majors that fulfill "high need fields" requirements.
