In 2007 the U.S. Congress created the Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant Program that provides grants of up to $4,000 per year to students who intend to teach in a public or private elementary or secondary school that serves students from low-income families. In exchange for receiving a TEACH Grant, students 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. Grant recipients 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.

** NOTE: The federal TEACH Grant program is not available at MCC, since a full teacher certification program is not offered at the college. However, MCC teaching majors are encouraged to ask their transfer university if that institution is participating in the program for bachelor's degrees in education.
