The Office of Higher Education (OHE) recently opened the 2018 online applications for teachers to apply for the Minnesota Teacher Shortage Loan Repayment Program. Learn more and apply.

Teachers working in designated teacher-shortage areas in Minnesota may be eligible for help with their student loan payments. New this year, Agricultural Education teachers may also be eligible to apply for additional repayment through a new state loan repayment program.

The Minnesota Teacher Shortage Student Loan Repayment Program was established to provide student loan repayment assistance to teachers providing classroom instruction in a teacher shortage area in Minnesota.

The purpose of the program is to encourage teachers to teach in Minnesota in designated shortage areas. Shortage areas include teacher licensure fields in high demand statewide, geographical regions within the state experiencing teacher shortages and teacher licensure fields in high demand within regions of the state.
