NIH announces the continued availability of education loan repayment under the extramural loan repayment programs (LRP).

The purpose of the LRP is to recruit and retain highly qualified health professionals as research investigators in clinical, pediatric, health disparities, or contraception and infertility research. There are five individual LRPs. Each provides up to $35,000 annually to repay the educational loan debt of qualified health professionals who agree to perform research within the NIH mission for at least two years, and agree to engage in such research for at least 50 percent of their work schedule.

The five LRPs have specific eligibility requirements and funding set-asides. For more information see the LRP website at, or contact the Division of Loan Repayment Information Center at 1-866-849-4047 or
