NIH Repays Up to $50,000/Year of Educational Debt for Researchers


Do you have student debt? If so, you can get up to $100,000 repaid towards your student loans with a two-year award from the NIH Loan Repayment Programs (LRPs) in exchange for a two-year commitment to conduct research. The Extramural LRP has six subcategories that aim to recruit and retain highly qualified biomedical and behavioral scientists.  The LRPs are unique programs, with tremendous benefit to early-stage researchers, so we strongly encourage researchers that were not successful in getting their applications funded to apply again.

Ready to apply for an LRP award? The application cycle is now open until November 17, 2022.

If you missed the first NIH Grants Conference PreCon webinar dedicated the LRPs, the recording is now available. Here’s a few helpful resources to get you started:
