Teacher Opportuntities

 ACADEMIC DISCIPLINES | TEACHING JOBS | CONTACT

This federal designation of teacher shortage areas enables borrowers who had no outstanding Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL) on July 1, 1987, but who had an outstanding FFEL on July 1, 1993, to qualify for deferment of loan repayment under the Federal Stafford and Federal Supplemental Loans for Students (SLS) programs anytime within the life of the borrower’s loan(s).

Federal Perkins Loan borrowers who are full time teachers of mathematics, science, foreign languages, bilingual education, art, health, language arts, music, physical education, social science, special education, career and technical education or speech pathologists may also qualify for cancellation of up to 100% of their loan.

These designations may also enable grant recipients to fulfill their teaching obligation under the Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant Program or the Paul Douglas Teacher Scholarship Program.

The principals at the schools are the delegated authority to provide certification that eligible borrowers or scholars are teaching in a designated teacher shortage area. For information concerning deferment under the Stafford Loan or SLS programs, the borrower should contact the Federal Student Aid Hotline at 1-800-4FED-AID.
