Manhattanville University recently received approval from the Department of Education to offer Federal Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) grants to its undergraduate and graduate students. The grants will provide up to $4,000 per year to qualified students pursuing teaching degrees, helping them pay for their tuition.

Brian Carolan, dean of Manhattanville University’s School of Education, said, “This is a wonderful opportunity for many of our students. Federal TEACH grants will enable qualified Manhattanville students to receive the funding they need to get undergraduate and graduate degrees in education. At the same time, it enables underserved communities to benefit from a whole new generation of passionate, dedicated teachers. TEACH grants are a great opportunity for aspiring teachers committed to making a difference in underserved communities.”

To qualify for the grant, students must meet its academic achievement requirements, be pursuing a teaching degree, and sign the TEACH Grant Agreement to Serve. The teaching service obligation requires grant awardees to teach low-income students for four years, teach in a high-need field (eg math, science, foreign language, bilingual education, and special education), and finish the four years of teaching within eight years of graduating.

The grant will make teaching degrees more financially accessible for aspiring teachers passionate about teaching underserved students.
