Is the TEACH Grant Right for You?

Do you plan to:

  • Teach full-time?
  • Be designated as a "highly qualified" teacher?
  • Teach in a high-needs subject matter as defined by the Federal Government or your state?
  • Teach in a Title I (low-income) school?
  • Teach full-time as a highly qualified teacher of a high-needs subject matter in a low-income school for at least 4 years within 8 years of graduating from your Lesley University program?  

If you answered YES to all of these questions, the TEACH Grant may be a good fit for you.
