So I was nominated for this grant back in 2009 when I was an undergrad pursuing my credential. I obtained my credential in 2011. I didn't entirely forget about the APLE grant because it was always on the back of my mind. My assumption was that I had some reasonable grace period to complete my part of the deal. I mean I also got a TEACH grant and as long as I validated I'm still pursuing a full time teaching job to fulfill my obligation, they were okay with it. As we all know, the education field has been rough the last few years. I did not land a full time teaching gig until this school year. I got an e-mail today that my APLE grant is withdrawn because I have not started to complete my required 4 years of teaching. This is the exact reason they listed: N36 - Not providing eligible teaching service within the 24/36 month teaching requirement I mean WTF. Don't they realize the circumstances? i will give them a call tomorrow to see what I can do. But does anyone have any input?
