NIH Loan Repayment Programs

The congressionally-established National Institute of Health Loan Repayment Programs (NIH LRP) help repay the outstanding student loans of researchers who are or will be conducting nonprofit biomedical or behavioral research. Successful applicants will have up to $50,000 annually of qualified educational debt repaid by the NIH in return for a commitment to engage in NIH mission-relevant research.  Applicants can continue to apply until debt is paid off.

The online application deadline is November 16, 2023 (5pm local time). See the application process interactive roadmap.

For more information, review the NIH LRP website. If you have questions or are interested in applying, please contact the LRP Institutional Business Official (IBO) Bonnie Dalley at

If applying, please list the IBO as Bonnie Dalley using her eRA Commons ID: BONNIEDALLEY. The alternate IBO is Todd Bjorklund whose eRA Commons ID is: TODDBJORKLUND.
