NIH Extramural Loan Repayment Program
LRP Information Center
The NIH Extramural Loan Repayment Program provides Loan repayment assistance for researchers that are not employed by the NIH. Loan repayment awards are based on an applicant's potential to build and sustain a research career, not to support specific research.
Extramural loan repayment is available for researchers in the areas of:
- Clinical research
- Health disparities
- Contraception and infertility
- Clinical research for individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds
To be eligible, an applicant must be a U.S. citizen (or U.S. national or permanent resident) and have one of the following degrees:
- Pharm. D.
- Equivalent doctoral degree from an accredited institution
In exchange for a commitment to a research career, NIH will repay up to $50,000 per year.
