New! Dental Students Eligible

Opens August 16!

The National Health Service Corps (NHSC) Students to Service Loan Repayment Program opens August 16, 2016.

Eligibility is open to medical (M.D. or D.O.) and dental students (D.D.S. or D.M.D.) in their final year of a U.S. accredited school who are planning to pursue a career in primary care, and are committed to working in underserved communities with limited access to care.


Students to Service loan repayment award recipients receive up to $120,000 (tax free) for at least three years of full-time service at an approved NHSC site in a Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA) of greatest need. Upon completion of residency for medical students (dental residency is encouraged but not required), recipients serve as primary care providers in an NHSC-approved site in a HPSA of greatest need.

Plan Ahead

The program is expected to be competitive. Please note that applicants who have federally-serviced loans will need to create a FSA ID before beginning the application process.
