NIH Loan Repayment Programs that help pay student loans

Ericka Boone, Ph.D., Director, Division of Loan Repayment, National Institutes of Health

The NIH Loan Repayment Programs were established by Congress to recruit and retain highly qualified health professionals in biomedical and biobehavioral research careers. The programs repay up to $35,000 annually of a researcher’s qualified educational debt in return for a commitment to engage in NIH mission-relevant research.
