Do you have outstanding student loan debt? The congressionally-established National Institute of Health Loan Repayment Programs (NIH LRP) are designed to recruit and retain highly qualified health professionals into biomedical or biobehavioral research careers. Successful applicants will have up to $50,000 annually of qualified educational debt repaid by the NIH in return for a commitment to engage in NIH mission-relevant research. From 2011 - 2018, the application success rate for the NIH LRP was 50%.

There are five specific program areas for the NIH Loan Repayment Program: Clinical Research, Pediatric Research, Health Disparities Research, Contraception and Infertility Research and Clinical Research for Individuals from Disadvantaged Backgrounds.

The online application period is September 1, 2019 through November 15, 2019 (5 pm local time).
