Are You a Researcher with Student Debt? NIH Loan Repayment Programs Can Help!


Don’t let student debt hold you back from your dreams!  In this quick (3 min) video presented by Matthew Lockhart, Director of the Division of Loan Repayment, you can learn more about the eligibility criteria and the program categories for NIH’s Loan Repayment Programs. The next application cycle opens on September 1, 2023 and is open until November 16, 2023.  


  1. Can individuals with student loan debt get some forgiveness or debt relief by serving as NIH research application reviewers? Or get some credit by working part-time or temporary mains in rural areas and disaster-affected areas? The existing LRPs don’t offer enough options to fit the circumstances of many borrowers.

  2. Hi, I would like to know if NIH employees (health science administrators or health policy analysts) qualify for your programs? Do you help NIH employees to pay their government student loan? Thanks!
