OSUTeach students can apply for TEACH (Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education) grants. Students receive up to $4,000 per year by committing to teach in a high-need field, in a low-income district for four years within eight years of graduation.
OSUTeach students who plan to teach in Oklahoma after graduation can receive reimbursement for eligible student loan expenses or an equivalent cash benefit through TSEIP (Oklahoma’s Teacher Shortage Employment Incentive Program). Students must teach in an Oklahoma public secondary school for at least five years.
