Forgivable Education Loans for Service (FELS)


This scholarship/loan program is offered through the College Foundation of North Carolina. A scholarship/loan means that although it is technically a loan, if you follow the rules and obligations of the program, the amount is forgiven through service and thus becomes a scholarship. 

The Forgivable Education Loans for Service (FELS) consists of the repackaging of several former NC scholarship/loan programs into one program. FELS provides financial assistance to qualified students who are committed to working in North Carolina in fields designated as critical employment shortage areas. These programs are related to teaching, allied health, nursing and medicine programs. This replaces and consolidates some former programs such as the Nursing Scholars scholarship loan Program (NSP), Nurse Education Scholarship Loan Program (NESLP), Prospective Teachers Scholarship Loan (PTSL), and Health, Science & Math (HSM).
