To encourage outstanding professionals to pursue careers in biomedical, behavioral, social, and clinical research, the National Institutes of Health Loan Repayment Programs (LRPs) offer to repay student loans for individuals conducting qualified research funded by a domestic nonprofit organization or U.S. federal, state, or local government entity.
The LRPs may repay up to $35,000 of qualified student loan debt per year for individuals who make a two-year commitment to qualified research programs. The program can be used for repayment of student debt accrued in undergraduate, graduate or medical school. In addition to the loan repayment benefits, students will also receive an institutional salary for their research.
Applications to the LRPs are due by Nov. 17, 2014. Click here for program eligibility information and application instructions.
