2015 NHSC Loan Repayment Program is Now Open
January 22, 2015
The 2015 National Health Service Corps (NHSC) Loan Repayment Program application cycle is now open and will close on March 30, 2015 at 7:30PM EST.
Primary care medical, dental and mental/behavioral health clinicians can get $50,000 to repay their health profession student loans in exchange for a two-year commitment to work at an approved NHSC site in a high-need, underserved area. The payment is free from Federal income tax and is made at the beginning of service so you can more quickly pay down your loans. Approved sites are located across the U.S., in both urban and rural areas.
The 2015 application cycle is expected to be competitive. On average, it can take up to three weeks to complete an application so apply early!
