NIH Extramural Loan Repayment Program (LRP)

Modified: September 27, 2017

Applications for the NIH Loan Repayment Program will be accepted beginning on September 1 and will be done by November 15. Please review the revised announcements!

The overall purpose of the NIH extramural LRP is the recruitment and retention of highly qualified health professionals as research investigators to careers in research. These extramural loan repayment programs provide for the repayment of educational loan debt of up to $35,000 annually (up to $70,000 over a two-year contract) for qualified scientific researchers. LRP applicants must be U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals, or permanent resident of the U.S, and must have an M.D., Ph.D., Pharm. D., Psy.D., D.O., D.D.S., D.M.D., D.P.M., D.C., N.D., O.D., or equivalent doctoral degree from an accredited institution. More information is available on the LRP website, which includes eligibility details and an online application. Notices below replace previous announcements that inadvertently omitted the Ineligible Loans section.
