2011 NHSC Loan Repayment Program

The NHSC (http://NHSC.hrsa.gov) recently announced the opening of its 2011 loan repayment program.

Provisions in the Affordable Care Act allowed the Corps to make several important and exciting changes to the 2011 NHSC Loan Repayment Program:

  • Increase in Financial Support. NHSC members may now receive up to $60,000 in loan repayment for a full-time, two-year service commitment and up to $170,000 for a full-time, five-year service commitment. Members also have the option to completely eliminate their educational loan debt with additional years of service.
  • More Flexible Options to Complete Service. The loan repayment program now offers three options for fulfilling the service obligation: A two-year, full-time contract, a four-year, half-time contract, and a two-year, half-time contract.
  • Increased Credit for Teaching. The service obligation for clinical practice hours has been updated to include a 20 percent credit for teaching and a 50 percent credit for instruction at a Teaching Health Center.

And, for the first time, prospective Corps members can complete their application entirely online.
