Pay off your student debt with help from the annual NIH loan repayment program

The NIH is accepting applications for its annual Extramural Loan Repayment Program. If you’re a health professional pursuing a career in biomedical, behavioral, social or clinical research, and plan to commit at least two years to research, you may be eligible for up to $35,000 per year. The program is divided into five subdivisions:

Eligibility requirements for each program can vary, so be sure to read the full notices. For all Loan Repayment Programs, applicants must be U.S. citizens, nationals, or permanent residents and have a doctoral degree from an accredited institution. Applicants must engage in research that averages at least 20 hours a week during each quarterly service period per contract quarter. Total qualifying educational debt must be equal to or exceeding 20 percent of applicants institutional base salary at the time of award.

Note that these grants are awarded to the individual and do not go through OHSU’s system. However, you must work with OHSU’s pre-award office to verify your affiliation with the university.

Applications accepted Sept. 1 through Nov. 15, 2014.
