The Federal TEACH Grant is available to Linfield education and pre-education majors. The grant amount is up to $4,000* annually and is not based on financial need. Students who receive a TEACH Grant must complete a service obligation by serving as a highly-qualified teacher in a designated high-need field at a low-income school for four years within eight years of completing a TEACH Grant eligible program. Failure to complete teaching service will result in the TEACH Grant being converted to an unsubsidized Stafford loan with retroactive interest.

*Due to the Sequester passed by Congress, any TEACH Grant awards were reduced by 6 percent where the first disbursement is made after March 1, 2013 (including both 2012-2013 and 2013-2014 awards). Thus the annual maximum was decreased from $4,000 to $3,760. On October 11, 2013, Sequestration Year 2 guidance was released, and the TEACH Grant awards were reduced from 6 percent to 7.2 percent retroactive to October 1, 2013. Any awards made from October 1, 2013 on are subject to the additional reduction, and that annual maximum amount is $3,712.
