Critical Needs Teacher Loan/Scholarship (CNTP)

The Critical Needs Teacher Loan/Scholarship (CNTP) is available to the student who:

  • Is a Junior or Senior student at a Mississippi college or university. A limited number of awards may be available to freshmen and sophomores should funds be available.
  • Agrees to employment immediately upon degree completion as a full-time classroom teacher in a public school located in a critical teacher’s shortage area of the state.
  • Can verify the intention to pursue a first bachelor’s degree in teacher education.
  • Can document that Praxis I has been passed or that applicant is exempt from this requirement.
  • Participates in entrance counseling.
  • Enrolls full-time and part-time (minimum of six hours).

Interested non-Mississippi residents may apply, but must have been fully admitted as a regular student to a college or university in Mississippi. All continuing participants must: achieve a 2.5 grade point average; meet the satisfactory academic progress standards of the institution through the normal time required to complete the teacher education curriculum. For most purposes, the normal time required will also be determined by when the student began the teacher education curriculum, but can never exceed eight (8) semesters; document that Praxis II has been passed after no more than three semesters during the CNTP participation; renew the application each year; and attend an entrance counseling session. The loan to service obligation can be discharged on the one year’s service for one year of loan received. Teaching service is defined as being employed as a full-time classroom teacher in a Mississippi public school located in the critical teacher’s shortage area. Applicants for CNT should not apply for William Winter Scholarship. Award amount and length of eligibility include tuition and required fees plus average room and meals plus a $500 allowance for books. Funds are not provided for our state tuition costs. Participants attending a private institution will receive an award amount equal to the award of a student attending the nearest comparable public institution.

Eligible participants may continue to receive funds for the normal time required to complete the teacher education curriculum. For purposes of CNTP, the normal time required to complete the teacher education curriculum will be determined by when the student began the teacher education curriculum, but cannot exceed two semesters for each classification (two semesters as a freshman, two semesters as a sophomore, etc.). Maximum eligibility for the freshman participant who remains eligible is for four (4) semesters. Maximum eligibility for the senior participant is one (1) year (2 semesters).

Application deadline is March 31.
