Teach For America

Teach For America is the national teacher corps of outstanding recent college graduates of all academic majors and cultural backgrounds who commit two years to teach in under-resourced urban and rural public schools.

If a borrower meets the specific criteria for teacher cancellation, he/she may receive partial cancellation as a teacher; otherwise, since Teach For America is an AmeriCorps program, the borrower must follow the procedures for AmeriCorps loan payback.
