Educational Loan Repayment Program
Maryland knows and recognizes that there needs to be a network of individuals, groups, and qualified professionals helping those in the underserved populations of the state. That is why they developed the Janet L. Hoffman Loan Assistance Repayment Program. This program provides a varied amount of assistance to individuals that work full-time in either government—be it state or local—or in a nonprofit organization that focuses mainly on helping the socioeconomically depressed or another underserved population. Those that wish to apply must meet all requirements of the program and must meet annual income guidelines, which can all be found here.
The Nancy Grasmick Teacher Award is given to, as the name suggests, educators within the state that serve in STEM field or those that work in a school where seventy-five percent of the student population receives school meal assistance. Those that wish to apply must also meet all of the minimum requirements of the aforementioned and discussed Janet L. Hoffman Program. They must also have student loan debt and have taught in the state of Maryland for the previous forty-eight months.
