Federal Pell Grant (2017-2018)
This grant is awarded to eligible students after FAFSA information is reviewed and need is determined. Award amounts are based upon Federal Pell Grant eligibility. The maximum Federal Pell Grant award for the 2017-2018 award year is $5,920
Interested students should contact the Office of Student Financial Aid. 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 (see below for more information on high-need fields and schools serving low-income students). As a recipient of a TEACH Grant, 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.
IMPORTANT: If you fail to complete this service obligation, all amounts of TEACH Grants that you received will be converted to a Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan. You must then repay this loan to the U.S. Department of Education. You will be charged interest from the date the grant(s) was disbursed. Note: TEACH Grant recipients will be given a 6-month grace period prior to entering repayment if a TEACH Grant is converted to a Direct Unsubsidized Loan. More information can be found at www.studentaid.gov.
