The Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant is a Federal program, which provides assistance to students pursuing careers in primary and secondary education. TEACH differs from other grant programs because receiving the TEACH Grant means committing to a four year service obligation. Failing to complete the TEACH Grant service obligation can result in the TEACH Grant converting to a Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loan. Eligible students are also required to complete annual counseling and sign an Agreement to Serve, which outline conditions of the TEACH Grant.
