The University of Massachusetts Lowell participates in the Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant program.
The TEACH Grant is a federal grant that provides up to $4,000 per year to students who agree to teach for four years at an elementary or secondary school, or an educational service agency that serves students from low-income families. Other requirements must also be met. If the service obligation is not met, the grant is converted to a Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan.

For more information please contact Christine Robbins in the Financial Aid office at 978-934-4230 or Charmaine Branchaud in The UMass Lowell College of Education at 978-934-4658.
Important: If you do not meet the eligibility requirements of the TEACH Grant Program, the full amount of the TEACH Grant that you received will be converted to a Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan that you must repay to the U.S. Department of Education with interest accrued from the date of each TEACH Grant disbursement.
Once the grant becomes a loan, it can never change back to a grant.
Federal regulations require that students who have received a Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education Grant (TEACH Grant) complete an exit counseling session upon withdrawing or graduating from their program of study.
The TEACH Grant Exit Counseling session provides information about the terms and conditions of a TEACH Grant service agreement, as well as the rights and responsibilities that apply if your TEACH Grant is converted to a Direct Unsubsidized Loan.
