Federal Teach Grant
The TEACH Grant is available to students who meet specific criteria which includes agreeing to serve as a full-time teacher in a high-need field serving low-income students. An important distinction with this program is that this grant will change to a Direct Unsubsidized Loan if the student fails to meet the terms of the agreement. That means that the student will need to repay these funds, with interest, if the terms of the agreement are not satisfied.
