Advocacy Update: NHSC Announces Students to Service Loan Repayment Pilot Program
The National Health Service Corps (NHSC) Students to Service Loan Repayment Program (S2S LRP) will provide loan repayment assistance to medical students (MD and DO) in their last year of school in return for serving in eligible Health Professional Shortage Areas (HPSAs) of greatest need. The program is seeking applicants who demonstrate the characteristics for and an interest in serving the nationís medically underserved populations beyond their service commitment. The S2S LRP will provide loan repayment up to $120,000 for three years of full-time service or six years of half-time service. The NHSC plans to open the S2S LRP application cycle in November 2011 and close the cycle in December 2011. They anticipate making 100 awards through this pilot. Additional information about the S2S LRP program can be found at NHSC.hrsa.gov/loanrepayment/studentstoservice.htm.
