Pharmacists included in NIH loan repayment program

Deadline for applications is November 16

Pharmacists are included in the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Loan Repayment Programs—a set of programs established by Congress and designed to recruit and retain highly qualified health professionals into research careers.

In exchange for a commitment to conduct biomedical or behavioral research funded by a nonprofit or government institution, NIH will repay up to $70,000 of student loan debt per 2-year contract through the programs. One of the eligibility requirements is a doctoral-level degree, such as a PharmD.

Applications to the NIH Loan Repayment Programs are being accepted through November 16. For more information, please visit . Please direct any additional questions to [email protected] or the LRP Information Center at 866-849-4047 from Monday to Friday, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm EST.
