They are designed specifically for educators that teach in schools designated as low-income, and / or teach in subject matter or teacher shortage areas, or that are deemed highly qualified.
Teachers/educators who are borrowers of certain loans may qualify for deferment, forbearance, or cancellation of all or part of their loans, depending on the type of loans and when the loans were made.
