Faculty Loan Repayment Program Application Cycle Now Open
The Faculty Loan Repayment Program application cycle has opened and will close on June 27, 2013. The Faculty Loan Repayment Program provides a lump sum, up to a maximum of $40,000, for a two year service commitment. In addition, the Program requires a funding match from your health professions school, which helps further reduce your educational debt. Faculty Loan Repayment Program participants who have additional qualifying loans once their service commitment is complete may re-apply for another two-year contract in exchange for additional years of service. The financial assistance offered through the Faculty Loan Repayment Program decreases the economic barriers associated with pursuing a career as a health professions educator preparing the next generation of health professionals. Applications are due by 7:30 pm ET on June 27, 2013. For more information, click here.
