Archived Webinar – Applying for the NIH Loan Repayment Program

The Early Career Forum recently hosted a webinar on the NIH Loan Repayment Programs (LRP). This webinar was co-hosted by Dr. Eric Moody, Wyoming Institute for Disabilities, a past LRP recipient and NIH LRP Ambassador; and Dr. Bryn Harris, University of Colorado Denver, a recent NIH LRP awardee. The NIH LRP is designed to recruit and retain qualified health professionals in research careers. The program alleviates some financial pressure of remaining in research careers instead of obtaining positions in private industry or private practice. The program repays up to $50,000 annually of a researcher’s qualified educational debt in return for a commitment to engage in research endeavors over a two year period. The webinar provided an overview of the program, qualifications for submission, application process, and tips for a successful submission. A recording of the webinar is available here.
