Grants & Scholarships
George Fox University offers several financial assistance programs for its degree-seeking students. Loans are a primary source of financial aid for graduate study. A limited number of need-based and academic-based grants and scholarships are available in some programs. Check with your financial aid counselor for more information. All students in need of financial aid are encouraged to apply.
The total financial aid package including all grants, scholarships, and loans may not exceed the amount of need when federal program funds are included.
Federal TEACH Grant
The Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant program provides grants of up to $4,000 per year to students who agree to teach full-time in a high-need field for four years at an elementary school, secondary school, or educational service agency that serves students from low-income families. The TEACH Grant does not have to be repaid unless the student fails to carry out service obligations, in which case the student must repay TEACH Grant as Direct Unsubsidized Loan with interest accrued from date grant was disbursed. To be eligible, students must complete the Agreement to Serve and TEACH Entrance Counseling each year. To learn more information or apply, visit teach-ats.ed.gov
