Learn About Loan Forgiveness Program April 5

ATU Teacher Candidate 2019
Teacher candidates enrolled in education programs at Arkansas Tech University gain hands-on experience while still an undergraduate student.

Arkansas Tech University undergraduate students, graduate students and recent graduates from underrepresented populations are invited to an informational session about a loan forgiveness program for eligible individuals who elect to teach in northwest Arkansas school districts.

The session is planned for 4-6 p.m. Wednesday, April 5, at Chambers Cafeteria West Dining Room. Dinner will be served.

The loan forgiveness program is made possible by a grant from the Walton Family Foundation. It provides each participant in the program with $25,000 for loan repayment over a period of five years if the individual chooses to teach in northwest Arkansas.

A local mentor will be recruited to help each participant succeed in the classroom and in the community.

Commitment to a teacher preparation program is not required to attend the April 5 informational session.

For more information, contact Dr. Ellen Treadway, ATU associate professor of teaching, learning and leadership, at (479) 880-4901 or etreadway@atu.edu.
