Loan Forgiveness and Cancellation Programs for Educators
Each year, the U.S. Department of Education announces the low-income schools and teacher shortage areas approved as eligible for loan forgiveness and cancellation for the current school year. This could be important to teachers who have Federal Stafford or Federal Supplemental loans, or Federal Perkins Loans.
NBPTS scholarships available for educators
Teachers interested in becoming National Board Certified Teachers are encouraged to learn about possible funding to offset the cost of the certification process through the National Board Scholarship Program (most funding is area specific, but there are programs for Wisconsin educators.)
