In an effort to assist aspiring teachers, the State Board of Regents and the state of Utah created the Terrel H. Bell Teaching Incentive Loan Program (TIL). The TIL program has been designed to provide financial assistance to outstanding students pursuing a degree in teacher education. Program requirements are simple and ideal for students who are planning a career in the teaching profession. Below are just a few reasons why this program is so valuable to Utah students: The TIL will fund full-time tuition and general fees for up to four years (eight semesters) or until the requirements of teacher certification have been met. Program funds are only available for qualifying students who are Utah residents. TIL funds may be used at any of Utah's participating institutions After graduation and certification the loan may be forgiven if the recipient teaches in a Utah public or private school (K-12). Loan forgiveness is done on a year-to-year basis. Other loan repayment options are available if recipients do not wish to teach in Utah.
