Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grants are federal grants for students in the education field who agree to teach for at least four academic years as highly qualified teachers serving low-income students in high-need fields. The four-year commitment (also known as the TEACH Grant service obligation) must be completed within eight calendar years of exiting Relay.
