Policies - NIH Loan Repayment Program

The NIH Loan Repayment Program is available to individuals pursuing research at any nonprofit, university, or government organization in the following areas: Clinical Research, Pediatric Research, Health Disparities Research, Clinical Research for Individuals from Disadvantaged Backgrounds, and Contraception and Infertility Research.

In exchange for a two-year research commitment (which cannot be concurrently served with the T32 payback commitment), the NIH will: repay qualified educational debt up to $35,000 per year, reimburse Federal and State taxes resulting from your repayment award, repay qualified educational debt after completion of the two-year commitment through competitive renewals (provided that the debt remains and the candidate still meets eligibility requirements).

Please note that the NIH Loan Repayment Program has a service requirement of two years, and the service requirement of the training grant and the LRP may not be fulfilled concurrently.
