Program Offers Financial Support and Loan Forgiveness for Future Educators in Saline County
The Salina Education Foundation is currently accepting applications for its Loan Initiative for Future Teachers (LIFT) Program, an initiative designed to support outstanding Saline County residents aspiring to pursue a career in teaching.
Under the LIFT program, eligible individuals can receive up to $5,000 in loans annually while working towards obtaining their initial teaching certificate. The foundation further incentivizes recipients by forgiving up to $5,000 of the loan for each year the newly certified teacher is employed by USD 305.
This primary program, which is renewable annually for three years (or up to four years in a five-year degree program), caters to qualified high school graduates, college students, classroom paraprofessionals, and other residents of Saline County who are committed to becoming certified teachers.
To access application materials and gain additional information about the LIFT Program, interested individuals can visit www.salinaeducationfoundation.com/lift.
