Teacher Shortage Loan Forgiveness

The Teacher Shortage Loan Forgiveness Program (TSLFP) was designed to help recruit and retain qualified teachers. The program provides an opportunity for school districts to apply for positions in critical need or shortage areas in which teachers may receive teacher loan forgiveness. This program will reduce loan indebtedness for individuals teaching in North Dakota at grade levels, content areas, and geographical locations identified by the Superintendent of Public Instruction as having a teacher shortage or critical need.


The 2018-19 TSLF district application period has now closed. Applications submitted by the priority date of 4/15/2018 are being reviewed.
