TEACH Grants

Anderson University participates in the Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant program. A TEACH grant is a non-need-based grant that provides up to $4,000 per year to students who intend to teach, to help pay for their postsecondary education.

As a condition for receiving a TEACH Grant, a student must agree to teach full-time for at least four years as a highly-qualified teacher in a high-need field, in a school or educational service agency (ESA) serving low-income students within eight years of completing or otherwise ceasing to be enrolled in the program of study for which the student received the grant.  

If the student does not meet the terms of the TEACH Grant service obligation, all TEACH Grant funds received will be converted to a Direct Unsubsidized Loan that must be repaid in full, with interest charged from the date of each TEACH Grant disbursement.

At Anderson University TEACH grants are offered to sophomore, junior, and senior undergraduates who meet the 3.25 GPA requirement and have been admitted into the School of Education's Teacher Preparation Program (TPP). For details about TPP admission requirements visit www.anderson.edu/soe/academics/teacher-preparation.html.  The dean of the School of Education approves each TEACH grant for each year that a student applies.
