NIH reissued notices for its various Loan Repayment Programs (LRP), which can ease some of the burden from your student loans.

You may want to consider applying if you're an eligible doctoral-level clinician or researcher who's committed to conducting qualified research for at least two years. You can get up to $35,000 to offset your educational debt each year.

The current LRP cycle opens for applications September 1 and ends November 15. Be sure to note some changes that affect you and your application. For example:

  • You must have an eRA Commons ID to submit your LRP application.
  • All online application, colleague, and institutional support documents must be submitted by November 15.
  • The length of your application is bound by page limits instead of character limits to be consistent with NIH practices.
