TEXAS HIGHER EDUCATION COORDINATING BOARD (THECB) POSTS LOAN REPAYMENT RULES AND APPLICATION ON THEIR WEBSITE:

www.thecb.state.tx.us/lrp

The TSHA Executive Board is excited to announce that the Loan Repayment Program is alive and well. Lesa Moller, THECB Director, Loan Repayment Programs informed TSHA that the Rules and Application form is posted on their website. The deadline for THECB to receive applications is AUGUST 11, 2014.

TSHA is proud to provide the $300,000 in start-up funding to get this much needed program up and running. We would like to thank the Texas Council of Special Education Administrators (TCASE) for their support, and a special thank you to Lesa Moller for her initiative in seeing the rule process come to fruition within the THECB.

We are not publishing the Rules or Application on this site, but are referring members interested in applying for loan repayment to the THECB website, to ensure there is no wording conflict or misconstrued information. Questions about the program may be conveyed by phone at (512) 427-6340, or if calling from outside the Austin area (800) 242-3062, or by e-mail at loanrepaymentprograms@thecb.state.tx.us.
