Under Title 20 Chapter 28 Section 1078-11 of the U.S. Code there's a provision of student loan forgiveness for those working in a STEM field.

I contacted the Department of Education (which has student loan forgiveness forms for Public Sector workers and Teachers), and they referred me to my loan initiator ([Fedloan Servicing]) to obtain the appropriate documentation. A Fedloan Servicing representative informed me that they didn't offer a STEM field forgiveness.

Has anyone had any success utilizing this method of loan forgiveness at all through Fedloan Servicing or some other loan initiator? Thanks!

Did a bit more digging. A closer look at the actual US Code shows that this is a provision under the Federal Family Education Loan Program which ended in January 2010 and it seems only those loans made under this program are eligible.
