Costs and Financial Aid

Putting the Financial Pieces Together

Continuing your education requires an investment: of time, energy and, of course, money. The T.E.A.C.H. model is true partnership in which the T.E.A.C.H. program, your employer*, and you share in the costs of your education.

T.E.A.C.H. provides:

  • a major share of tuition, book expenses, and credential fees
  • a travel stipend
  • a bonus to you when your contract is completed
  • reimbursement to your employer for release time so that you may attend class or complete coursework
  • counseling and administrative support

Your employer provides:

  • a portion of the cost of tuition
  • 15 hours of paid release time each semester
  • a bonus or raise to you when contract is completed (in most cases)

As the scholarship recipient, you provide:

  • a portion of the cost of tuition, book expenses, and credential fees
  • a commitment to attend classes and successfully complete coursework
  • a commitment to remain with your employer or in a regulated child care program as specified in your contract
