GREAT NEWS! The Canton Student Loan Foundation has just made students attending career tech programs eligible for low interest student loans!  If you or someone you know needs help with program fees, equipment, or other related costs, have them check out our website HERE or give us a call!  Don't use a high rate credit card or loan.  There are no fees or interest accrual while in training.  These are some of the trainings that are eligible: CDL, Real Estate, Home Inspection, Welding, Automotive, Police and Fire, Cosmetology, Paralegal and more! If you don't see your program, call us! 



Graduate school loans are now available to ANY graduate of a Stark County high school and not just students previously borrowing from the Foundation.  There is no deadline to apply and $4,000 is available each year for 2 years for a maximum benefit of $8,000!  We've been helping students for over 100 years and we want to help YOU with your graduate school expenses!  Apply Today!


​The Canton Student Loan Foundation is a private not for profit organization and not a federal entity.  Loan funds become available as students repay their loans into a revolving pool of funds.  Loan repayment is part of a " Pay it Forward" program whereby funds repaid by Stark County graduates are then loaned out again to future graduates who need assistance with their school expenses.  


Starting in January 2023, the Canton Student Loan Foundation began managing the loan program of the Student Loan Foundation of North Canton.  This means that all business including repayments, disbursements, and applications are now managed by CSLF.  This agreement will significantly benefit the North Canton community by providing services and technology not available currently.  Students will continue to have the opportunity to borrow from both funds with graduate school funding available as well.
