Loan Forgiveness Informational Session April 30

Walton Family Foundation Loan Forgiveness Plan

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 Pope County, Sebastian County or northwest Arkansas school districts.

The session is planned for 4-6 p.m. Tuesday, April 30, at Williamson Hall 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 the identified school districts.

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 30 informational session.
