Minneapolis—August 13, 2009—Beginning in September 2009, students in select programs in the Richard W. Riley College of Education and Leadership at Walden University may be eligible for the federal TEACH (Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education) Grant Program.

The non-needs-based TEACH Grant Program provides grants of up to $4,000 per year to post-baccalaureate and graduate 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. The teaching service requirement must be met within eight years of completing the program for which the TEACH Grant was awarded. Post-baccalaureate and graduate students may receive up to two years of grant funding for a total of $8,000.

“We are pleased to be able to offer our students another way to fund their education,” said Victoria Reid, vice president of The Richard W. Riley College of Education and Leadership. “Helping students who are dedicated to teaching children from low-income families is just another example of our commitment to making a difference.”
