Federal TEACH Grant

Federal Teach Grant   This grant is different from other federal student grants in that it requires the student to take certain kinds of classes and then do a certain kind of job in order to keep the grant from turning into a loan. A TEACH Grant program is one that prepares the student to teach in a high-need field. Currently, the high-need fields that are offered here at B-CU are Biology Education 6-12 and Exceptional Student Education K-12/ESOL. To be eligible for the TEACH Grant

  • Meet the basic eligibility criteria for the federal student aid programs.
  • Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®).
  • Be enrolled as an undergraduate, postbaccalaureate, or graduate student at a school that participates in the TEACH Grant Program.
  • Be enrolled in a TEACH-Grant-eligible program.
  • Meet certain academic achievement requirements (generally, scoring above the 75th percentile on one or more portions of a college admissions test or maintaining a cumulative GPA of at least 3.25). For specific information about the academic requirements, talk to the financial aid office at your college or career school.
  • Receive TEACH Grant counseling that explains the terms and conditions of the TEACH Grant service obligation. You must complete counseling each year that you receive a TEACH Grant.
  • Sign a TEACH Grant Agreement to Serve.

The amount of the TEACH Grant varies from year to year. Please refer to the website for current amounts.
