Grants are gift aid that you do not need to repay. To be eligible for these grants, students must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Generally, grants are applied directly to your account. If a received check requires the student's endorsement, then a notification will be sent to the student's Seattle University email address by Student Financial Services.

Grants for Graduate Students 

Federal TEACH Grant

Students participating in Master's degree programs in special education or teaching may qualify for a federal TEACH Grant. In return for receiving a TEACH Grant, a student agrees to serve:

  • As a highly-qualified full-time teacher in a high-need field in a public or private elementary or secondary school that serves low-income students and
  • For at least four academic years within eight calendar years of completing the program of study for which they received TEACH Grant funding.

If a recipient fails to complete the service obligation, all amounts of TEACH Grants received will be converted to a Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loan, with interest charged from the date the TEACH Grant was originally disbursed, which will then be repaid to the U.S. Department of Education.

More Information

For more information about this program, see the Federal Student Aid website.

For information about how the grant's service obligation is monitored and/or repayment is made if the service obligation isn't met and the grant is converted to a loan, visit FedLoan Servicing.
