Faculty Loan Repayment

We repay loans to those interested in pursuing a career as a faculty member at a health professions school.

The Faculty Loan Repayment Program (FLRP) helps recruit and retain health professions faculty members by encouraging students to pursue faculty roles in their respective health care fields. This is vital for preparing and supporting the next generation of educators.

What are the benefits of the FLRP?

As a faculty member, you are in the best position to train the next generation of health professionals. And by applying for a loan through the FLRP, you can reduce your financial burden while doing it.

Specifically, you will receive:

  • Loan payment assistance up to $40,000
  • Funding to offset the tax burden

Interested in applying?

Currently, the application cycle is closed. Once a new cycle opens, be aware that you must meet the following requirements:

  • Come from a disadvantaged background, based on environmental and/or economic factors,
  • Have an eligible health professions degree or certificate, and
  • Have an employment commitment as a faculty member at an approved health professions institution for a minimum of two years.
