Federal TEACH Grant

Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant is a federal grant program that provides grants of up to $4,000 per year to students who intend to teach in a public or private elementary or secondary school that serves students from low-income families.  Note: Undergraduate candidates may only receive the TEACH Grant for their FIRST undergraduate degree.

In order to be considered for the Federal TEACH Grant at Saint Xavier University you must be enrolled (with full admission status & a GPA of 3.25 or above) in one of the following School of Education Programs:

As a condition for receiving a TEACH Grant, you must sign a TEACH Grant Agreement to Serve in which you agree to (among other requirements) teach:

IMPORTANT: If you do not complete your service obligation, all TEACH Grant funds you received will be converted to a Direct Unsubsidized Loan. You must then repay this loan to the U.S. Department of Education, with interest charged from the date the TEACH Grant was disbursed (paid to you or on your behalf).
