Speech Language Pathologist Forgivable Loan


Speech-Language Pathologist Forgivable Loans (SLPL) are available to students seeking a first Master's degree in Speech-Language Pathology, Communicative Disorders, or Communication Sciences and Disorders. For full-time students, awards will be made in the amount of tuition and required fees at a public institution. For part-time students, awards will be based on hours enrolled, but will not exceed the highest tuition and required fees for part-time students attending a public institution of higher learning. The loan will be forgiven for recipients who serve as licensed speech-language pathologists in a Mississippi public or charter school for one year for each year of funding received. Loan recipients who choose not to fulfill the service obligation will be required to repay the loan in full with a penalty of 5% and interest.
