Federal TEACH Grant Program

TEACH stands for Teacher Eductation Assistance for College and Higher Education Grant Program. TEACH provides grant assistance to students who plan on becoming teachers AND meet very specific requirements.

To be eligible, you must score above the 75th percentile on a college admissions test or maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 3.25. For UNCG, as an undergraduate you must be in a specific major and be admitted to the Teacher’s Academy before you can be considered for the TEACH Grant. The list of UNCG TEACH eligible programs is below.

The maximum amount a student can receive in any one academic year is determined by the disbursement date. For disbursements after 10/1/16 through 9/30/17, the maximum annual amount is $3,724. An undergraduate cannot exceed a cumulative total of $16,000 and a graduate student cannot exceed a cumulative total of $8,000. Before a TEACH Grant can be disbursed, you must sign and submit a TEACH Grant Agreement To Serve to the U.S. Department of Education.

In order for a TEACH Grant to remain a grant and not convert to a Direct Unsubsidized Loan, a student must teach for four years in a Title I school and teach a high need subject.
