HRSA Faculty Loan Repayment Program now accepting applications

The Health Resources and Services Administration is now accepting applications to the Faculty Loan Repayment Program.

The deadline to apply is June 30 at 7:30 p.m. ET.

Eligible health professionals, including dentists, are invited to apply. If accepted, HRSA will repay a portion of their student loan debt — up to $40,000 over two years — in exchange for service at an eligible health professions school.

Applicants need to meet these criteria:

• Come from a disadvantaged background. HRSA bases this on environmental and economic factors.
• Have an eligible health professions degree or certificate.
• Be a faculty member at an approved health professions school with a contract for two years or more.

For more information, HRSA has a guidance document available that offers step-by-step assistance for applicants.

HRSA is also hosting a June 16 Zoom webinar from 2-4:30 p.m. ET to assist applicants with questions.
