Graduate Financial Aid Programs
TEACH Grant is a federal program which awards up to $4,000 per year for eligible undergraduate and graduate students who intend to teach and fulfill a required service agreement. The award amount is prorated for part-time students. The annual amount of the TEACH Grant is subject to change due to congressional action. Recipients must be enrolled in an eligible education major or TEACH Grant-eligible program. Please complete the SJFC TEACH Grant application to apply.
