Minnesota Indian Teacher Training Grant and Loan Program

A partnership with the Minneapolis and St. Paul Public Schools, the program’s goal is to increase the number of American Indian teachers in these districts. The financial aid package includes a combination of special grants and student loans. The loans are forgiven based on the number of years the student teaches in the Minneapolis or St. Paul district after obtaining an Augsburg education degree and meeting the state licensing requirements.

Loan Forgiveness

Under certain circumstances, the federal government will cancel all or part of an educational loan for those who perform volunteer work, are in the military, teach, or practice medicine or social work. To qualify, teachers must teach in a certain community, usually for a specified amount of time. Go to for more information about loan forgiveness programs or see an administrator at the school where you teach or plan to teach.
