Service Obligation

As a condition for receiving a TEACH Grant, you must agree to complete a TEACH Grant service obligation. To complete your service obligation, you must teach full-time for at least four years:

  • As a highly-qualified teacher;
  • At a school or educational service agency (ESA) serving low-income students; and
  • In a high-need field.

You must complete your required teaching service within eight years after you:

  • Complete the academic program for which you received your TEACH Grant; or
  • Are otherwise no longer enrolled in that program (for example, if you withdraw from school or if you change to a different program for which you are not eligible to receive a TEACH Grant).
