National Health Service Corps Loan Repayment Program

To be eligible for up to $50,000 in an initial loan repayment award Corps members are required to practice full-time for at least two years or part-time for four years at an NHSC-approved site. An award of $30,000 is available for two years of half-time service. After completing your initial service commitment, you can apply to extend your service and receive additional loan repayment assistance.With continued service, NHSC providers may be able to pay off all of their student loans.

Approved sites are located across the country in Health Professional Shortage Areas (HPSAs). About half of Corps members serve in federally-supported health centers. Other approved sites are rural and Indian Health Service clinics, public health department clinics, hospital-affiliated primary care practices, managed care networks, prisons, and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement sites.
