The new Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant Program provides up to $3,712- $3,760 per year in grants for graduate and undergraduate students who intend to teach full-time in high-need subject areas for at least four years at schools that serve students from low-income families. Graduate students are eligible for $3,712-$3,760 per year ($7,424-$7,520 total). Undergraduate students may receive up to $14,848-$14,880 for undergraduate study. Part-time students are eligible, but the maximum grant will be reduced. Please note the annual TEACH amount has been reduced due to Government reductions by the sequester, which depending on when the TEACH grant is disbursed, is currently ranging from a 6-7.2% reduction. The following programs at Medaille are TEACH-Grant eligible: Masters Programs


I'm grateful for the education I've received.

The instructors were knowledgeable and welcomed class discussions, with
respect for each student's contribution. I've learned how to be a more
effective leader. My capstone class gave insight on how to combine all
the education learned to operate a business. That's when I realized how
much I had sharpened my knowledge.
