Student loan forgiveness and loan repayment programs provide borrowers a means of having all or part of their student loan debt forgiven or repaid in exchange for work or service in specific fields or professions or following a prolonged period during which their student loan debt burden is high relative to their income. In both loan forgiveness and loan repayment programs, borrowers typically qualify for benefits by working or serving in certain capacities for a specified period of time or by satisfying other program requirements over an extended term.

Upon qualifying for benefits, some or all of a borrower’s student loan debt is forgiven or paid on his or her behalf. This book identifies and describes federal student loan forgiveness and loan repayment programs authorized by federal law. These program descriptions are intended to provide general information about the purpose of existing programs and how they are designed to operate. This book also describes the Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) program, the Federal Work-Study (FWS) program, and the Federal Perkins Loan program. (Imprint: Nova)
