The National Health Service Corps (NHSC) Loan Repayment Program (LRP) application cycle is now open and accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2014. The purpose of the program is to provide loan repayment assistance to licensed primary care medical, dental, and mental and behavioral health providers who serve in communities with limited access to health care.
The NHSC LRP is expected to be competitive and may take several weeks to complete an application; applicants are advised to begin the process early. The LRP offers both full-time and part-time opportunities. In order to apply for the loan repayment program, you must be licensed to practice in an NHSC-eligible discipline, have a job at an NHSC-approved site, and have unpaid, qualifying educational loans. The deadline to apply is Thursday, March 20.
