Agreement to Service. In accordance with these terms and conditions, if 
a TEACH Grant recipient does not fulfill the required teaching service 
obligation or otherwise fails to meet the requirements of the TEACH 
Grant Program, any TEACH Grant funds the individual received will be

repay in full, with interest. The Agreement to Serve also explains the 
repayment terms and conditions that will apply if a TEACH Grant is 
converted to a Direct Unsubsidized Loan.
