Information for Graduate Education Students

The NYS Teacher Loan Forgiveness Program provides student loan forgiveness for the purpose of attracting and retaining teachers serving in hard to staff districts or who teach in subject shortage areas in New York State. Recipients can receive awards up to $5,000 per year for up to four years, not to exceed the total amount of the recipient’s student loan debt. 

By working in low-income schools, or in high-need educational areas, teachers can often qualify for loan forgiveness programs.
