Terrel H. Bell Teaching Incentive Loan Program

Application Due Date: March 2, 2017

The Teaching Incentive Loan (TIL) is funded by the Utah State Legislature. TIL recipients are required to pursue an educator preparation program, obtain educator licensing, and then teach in Utah public schools for a period equal to the time they received assistance. The TIL consists of a waiver (of tuition and fees up to a specific amount at the Utah public institutions and $995.00 per semester at private institutions) to be used for a period not exceeding 8 semesters. The program is jointly administered by the State Board of Education and the State Board of Regents.

TEACH Grant Program

The TEACH "Grant" program provides up to $4,000 a year in "grant" aid to undergraduate (first bachelor's degree) and graduate students. Eligible undergraduate and graduate students may receive no more than $16,000 and graduate students may receive no more than $8,000 total in TEACH "Grants." Unfortunately, the law does not currently allow grants for University of Utah students working on post-baccalaureate certificate programs. Elementary Education students are not eligible.

In exchange for TEACH "Grant" aid, students must agree to serve as a full-time teacher at specified schools serving low-income students and teach in a specified field for four academic years, within eight years after completing the college course. TEACH "Grant" recipients that do not fulfill their teaching obligations must repay the "Grant" as if it was an unsubsidized Direct Loan with interest having accrued since disbursement. For more information, please click on TEACH.

If you are interested in the TEACH Grant Program please contact an education advisor.
