Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education

The Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant Program that provides grants of up to $3,496 a year (effective March 1, 2013) to students who intend to teach in a public or private elementary or secondary school. You must agree to serve as a full-time teacher in a high-need field that serves students from low-income families.

As a recipient of a TEACH Grant, you must teach for at least four academic years within eight calendar years of completing the program of study for which you received a TEACH Grant.

IMPORTANT: If you fail to complete this obligation, all amounts of TEACH Grants that you received will be converted to a Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loan. You must then repay this loan to the U.S. Department of Education. You will be charged interest from the date the grant(s) was disbursed. Note: TEACH Grant recipients will be given a 6-month grace period prior to entering repayment if a TEACH Grant is converted to a Direct Unsubsidized Loan.

To receive a TEACH Grant you must meet the following criteria:

  • Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid FAFSA
  • Be a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen.
  • Be enrolled as an undergraduate, graduate student at Chowan University. Undergraduate students must be accepted into the Teacher Education Program at Chowan University in order to be eligible.
  • Be enrolled in course work that is necessary to begin a career in teaching or plan to complete such course work
  • Meet the cumulative GPA requirement of at least 3.25
