The Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant Program 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. In exchange for receiving a TEACH Grant, you must agree to serve as a full-time teacher in a high-need field in a public or private elementary or secondary school that serves low-income students. 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. If you fail to complete the service obligation, all of the TEACH Grant funds you received will be converted to a Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan. You must then repay this loan, including interest accrued from the date the grant(s) disbursed, to the U.S. Department of Education. Federal Student Aid Regulations require that you begin academically related activity in all courses for which Wichita State disbursed TEACH.

Amounts are subject to change due to federal sequestration. TEACH Grant funds will prorate based on your enrollment status (i.e. full-time, three-quarter-time, half-time).
