Are there opportunities to offset or reduce what I would owe for the master’s?

Among the available opportunities, many participants utilize the TEACH Grant and the AmeriCorps Segal Education Award. The TEACH Grant allows for up to $3,772 toward graduate school tuition per year, totaling up to a maximum of over $7,500. AmeriCorps participants endorsed by City Teaching Alliance may be eligible to receive two Segal awards up to $7,395 each year, for a total of over $14,000 over two years, which can be used towards student loan repayment.

For candidates who are eligible, the Black Educators Initiative (BEI) offers financial and programmatic assistance throughout the program. BEI participants receive grants ranging from $4,000 to $5,000 and AU tuition payments between $20,000 and $25,000, resulting in a total of $24,000 to $30,000.
