The Colorado Department of Higher Education (CDHE) has opened the application window for the Educator Loan Forgiveness Program. A Colorado law passed this year addressing educator shortages, Senate Bill 3, authorizes the CDHE to make payments, on behalf of educators, to forgive $5,000 annually for five years on their qualified student loans. Priority goes to educators serving in rural and hard-to-fill positions. The CDHE is now accepting applications for the 2019-20 fiscal year.
