in TEACH Grant funds, up to a maximum of
$16,000 for undergraduate study.

As a condition for receiving a TEACH Grant, you must agree to teach full-time for

or educational service agency (ESA) serving low-income students. You must complete
the 4 years of teaching within 8 years after you complete or otherwise cease to
