Grants

Colorado Graduate Grant

Funded by the Colorado General Assembly and awarded to eligible graduate students in critical careers as defined by the Colorado Department of Higher Education and as identified by Regis University. Eligible graduate students must document financial need through their completed FAFSA with an EFC (expected family contribution) of less than $10,000 and must also document Colorado residency by submitting a completed Colorado Residency Form. Funding is limited. Graduate students enrolled full-time (6+ credit hours) receive priority consideration. If awarded and attending half-time (less than 6 graduate credit hours), the grant will be prorated based on enrollment.

Federal TEACH Grant

The Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant Program provides up to $4,000 per year ($16,000 total for undergraduate students and $8,000 total for graduate students) in grants for students who, annually: 1) are eligible for federal student aid programs, 2) complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), 3) complete the TEACH Grant Form, 4) complete TEACH Grant counseling, 5) complete the TEACH Grant Agreement to Serve or Repay. The TEACH Grant Counseling and Agreement to Serve or Repay are located at www.studentaid.gov. As part of the TEACH Grant Agreement to Serve, students agree to:

  • Serve as a full-time highly-qualified teacher for four elementary or secondary school years at a school or educational service agency that serves low-income students;
  • Teach in a high-need field; and
  • Complete the required four years of teaching within eight years after you graduate from or otherwise cease to be enrolled at the institution of higher education where you received your TEACH Grants.

If a student does not meet the requirements of their service obligation, all TEACH Grants they received will be converted to Direct Unsubsidized Loans. Students must repay these loans in full, with interest charged from the date of each TEACH Grant disbursement.

As required by the Budget Control Act of 2011 (the sequester law), any TEACH Grant disbursement requires a sequestration reduction. For example, a 5.70% sequestration reduction on a $4,000 TEACH Grant means that a student will actually receive $3,772.
