NHSC Loan Repayment Program

2014 Application Cycle Now Open

The National Health Service Corps (NHSC) Loan Repayment Program is now accepting applications for FY2014 Loan Repayment Program awards until March 20, 2014. This program is open to licensed primary care medical, dental and mental and behavioral health providers who are employed or have accepted an offer of employment at an NHSC-approved site and will begin working by July 15, 2014.

To help ensure that the communities with the greatest need are supported, qualified applicants working in health professional shortage areas (HPSA) with the highest scores will be given funding preference. With continued service, NHSC providers may be able to pay off all of their student loans.

The processing of applications for the 2014 NHSC Loan Repayment Program application cycle will begin after the program closes on March 20, 2014. Applicants should ensure that the application they submit is complete and includes all requested information. Awards are expected to be announced by Sept. 20, 2014.
