2013 Teaching Grants

Information on Government Teaching Grants
For Students and Women



Teaching grants are extended by the federal government and the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Federal Student Aid to students who want to pursue a career in education and teaching. Students need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid form to receive payment for tuition and fees, books, and room and board.

For graduate students who are completing programs in education, the Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education Grant is made available to them. The stipulations for receiving this grant are that the graduates need to teach for a minimum of four years in a public or private elementary or secondary school in a low-income neighborhood. If this is not adhered to by any graduate student, then he/she has to pay back the Teaching grant as a loan.

While setting up the Fulbright-Hays Group Projects Abroad Program, the US Department of Education made sure to design it in such a way so as to “contribute to the development and improvement of the study of modern foreign languages and area studies in the United States by providing training opportunities for faculty, teachers, and upperclassmen and/or graduate students in foreign countries where the United States has diplomatic representation.” Three short term and one long term programs are extended to the students studying humanities, foreign languages and social sciences, and who intends to return and teach in the US.

The Congress in 1986 founded the James Madison Memorial Fellowship with an intention to improve and support the education about the Constitution of the US from grades 7 to 12. A student applying for this Teaching grant must teach American government, American history or social studies.

A 5-year grant is provided by the Transition to Teaching Grant to recruit and train highly qualified professionals (who has no degree in the field of teaching) to acquire the necessary licenses or state certificates for teaching at high-need schools.

For women, there are many Teaching grants and scholarships to opt for and apply. While some grants depend on what subject a woman would like to teach, few other grants depend on where a woman is willing to teach. Again, some grants focus of the style of education a woman would choose, and still others are only open to minorities. Local grants are available to women living and working in a certain region, whereas national scholarships and grants are for all.

The first and foremost Teaching grant to try out and go for is the Pell Grant, which is need-based rather than education-based. To be eligible for this grant, filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Air form and submitting it in time is required.

Women can apply to another interesting Teaching grant – The American Montessori Society’s Teacher Education Scholarship. It is extended to the women who are interested only in Montessori teaching. It is open particularly to those who have been either accepted or will be accepted by an affiliated American Montessori Society’s Teacher Education Program.

Teaching grants are offered by The American Association of Retired People to needy women above 40 who require an additional education.
