The Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) is a federally-funded grant awarded to undergraduate students based on exceptional need and availability of funds. Funding for the FSEOG is limited each year, therefore not all eligible aid applicants can be offered an award from the program.

The TEACH Grant Program provides grants of up to $4,000 a year to students who are completing or plan to complete coursework needed to begin a career in teaching.
As a condition for receiving a TEACH Grant, you must sign a TEACH Grant Agreement to Serve in which you agree to (among other requirements) teach
IMPORTANT: If you do not complete your service obligation, all TEACH Grant funds you received will be converted to a Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan. You must then repay this loan to the U.S. Department of Education, with interest charged from the date the TEACH Grant was disbursed (paid to you or on your behalf).
