William F. Winter and Jack Reed, Sr. Teacher Loan Repayment Program
During the 2021 legislative session, the Mississippi Legislature created a new loan repayment program for early-career teachers. The William F. Winter and Jack Reed, Sr. Teacher Loan Repayment Program was created to make the teaching profession more appealing and more affordable by helping new teachers repay their undergraduate student loans.
We are excited to share that the Mississippi Office of Student Financial Aid is now accepting applications for the new program. A few things to note: this program is only for those who are first-time teachers. Only 150 teachers can be awarded admittance to the program, so please complete your applications in a timely manner.
The deadline date for this current application cycle is December 15, 2021.
