If You are Going To Be a Teacher, This Program is For You!

Deadline to apply is March 1, 2018

The T.H. Bell Incentive Loan Program is a program that helps future teachers pay for their schooling.  Here are the details of how the program works.

  1. Accepted applicants are required to pursue an educator preparation program.
  2. Get their educator licensing
  3. Teach in a Utah public school for a period equal to the time that they received assistance.

This waiver is for tuition and fees paid to a Utah institution of higher education.

We need more great teachers in Utah.  Here is a way for students to get their education paid for if they want to teach.  Below is the link for the rest of the description and the application.

Go future teachers!
