National Health Service Corps Loan Repayment Program
The purpose of the National Health Service Corps (NHSC) Loan Repayment Program (LRP) is to recruit and retain medical, nursing, dental, and behavioral/mental health clinicians in eligible communities of need designated as health professional shortage areas (HPSAs). In return for service in HPSAs, the program assists clinicians in their repayment of outstanding qualifying educational loans.
Eligible applicants are U.S. citizens and nationals that work in approved sites in the disciplines and specialties that are listed on the HRSA Loan Repayment Program infographic.
The Loan Repayment Program offers varying levels of funding based on the HPSA score a practice site has received.
Up to $50,000 is available for those who agree to practice full-time for at least 2 years. Up to $25,000 is available for those who agree to practice half-time.
