NIH’s Loan Repayment Programs (LRPs) provide doctoral-level clinicians or researchers who are committed to conducting NIH-qualified clinical research with up to $50,000 each year toward qualified educational debt.

NIAID participates in four LRPs, specifically those for clinical research, pediatric research, health disparities research, and research in emerging areas critical to human health.

The next annual application deadline is November 17, 2022.

Note that LRPs are distinct from the Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program as well as recent, targeted student debt cancellation for borrowers with loans held by the Department of Education. Individuals may participate in each program for which they meet the eligibility criteria.

Refer to our Loan Repayment Programs page for a longer synopsis. LRPs provide a tremendous benefit to early-stage researchers and eligible individuals would be remiss to overlook the opportunity.
