Cahill Learning Resources and Media Lab

The Cahill Learning Resources and Media Lab, more popularly known as the Cahill Lab, is a learning community space for current and future credential students in the Graduate College of Education. We house a comprehensive collection of K-12 instructional resources and materials, including teacher’s curriculum, curriculum kits and manipulatives, children’s literature, test assessments, test preparation books, education theory books, and more. In addition to our learning resources, the Cahill Lab holds media equipment and provides technical support to credential students who are completing their edTPA requirements, a performance-based assessment for California Teachers.

Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant

The TEACH Grant Program provides grants of up to $4,000 a year to students who are completing or plan to complete course work needed to begin a career in teaching. A Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant is different from other federal student grants because it requires you agree to complete a teaching service obligation as a condition for receiving the grant, and if you don't complete the service obligation, the TEACH Grant will be converted to a loan that you must repay, with interest.

The Golden State Teacher Grant Program

The Golden State Teacher Grant Program (GSTG) awards up to $20,000 to students currently enrolled in a professional preparation program approved by the Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) and working towards earning their preliminary teaching or pupil personnel services credential.
