The National Health Service Corps (NHSC) Students to Service Loan Repayment Program (S2S LRP) is administered by the Bureau of Health Workforce (BHW) in the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The NHSC S2S LRP provides loan repayment awards to students pursuing a degree in allopathic medicine, osteopathic medicine, physician assistant studies, nursing, or dentistry. In exchange for loan repayment, individuals agree to provide primary health services in Health Professional Shortage Areas (HPSAs) of greatest need. The NHSC seeks applicants who have an interest in serving the nation’s medically underserved populations and remaining in a HPSA beyond their service obligation. Students with a commitment to primary health care practice in underserved areas throughout the U.S. and who are willing to relocate based on the needs of the NHSC are the best candidates for this program.
Full-time students in the last year of medical, dental, physician assistant, or nursing program who plan to train and become licensed to provide patient care under the following disciplines and specialties are eligible to apply to the NHSC S2S LRP between now and Thursday, December 1, 2022.
