NIH Extramural Loan Repayment Program Now Accepting Applications Until November 17

The NIH Extramural Loan Repayment Programs (LRPs) application cycle is officially open!  LRP awardees can receive up to $100,000 of qualified educational debt repayment with a two-year contract.

The NIH Extramural LRP is a unique program, with tremendous benefit to early-stage researchers, so we strongly encourage those that were not successful in getting their applications funded to apply again.

The Extramural LRP application cycle will close on November 17, 2022.  Be sure to visit our website to take advantage of all of our available resources, and to learn more about eligibility requirements, application dates, and all of the benefits of the NIH LRP!
