TEACH Grant

 
The Department of Education at Washburn University is participating in the TEACH Grant Program. 

The U.S. Department of Education’s (the Department’s) TEACH Grant Program provides grant funds to postsecondary students who are completing or plan to complete coursework that is needed to begin a career in teaching, and who agree to serve for at least four years as a full-time, highly qualified teacher in a high-need field, in a school serving low-income students. Eligible full-time students may receive $4,000 per year in TEACH Grant funds, up to a maximum of $16,000 for undergraduate and postbaccalaureate study, and $8,000 for graduate study. 

If you receive a TEACH Grant but do not complete the required four years of teaching service within eight years after completing the coursework for which you received the grant, or if you otherwise do not meet the requirements of the TEACH Grant Program, all TEACH Grant funds that you received will be converted to a Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford/Ford Loan (Direct Unsubsidized Loan) that you must repay in full, with interest, to the Department. Once a TEACH Grant to a loan, it cannot be converted back to a grant. 

To qualify at the undergraduate level at Washburn University you must be admitted to the Department of Education Professional Teacher Program.
