Posted on October 24, 2012 at 8:28am

Sent: Thursday, October 18, 2012 10:27 AM
To: LRP_ANNOUNCEMENT@LIST.NIH.GOV
Subject: NIH Asks You to Keep Making a Positive Impact on Research Careers

 

The November 15 Deadline for NIH Loan Repayment Applications is approaching!  Please ensure that your top researchers are submitting their applications.

 

Dear Colleague:

 

As someone who has provided institutional certification for applicants to the program, you likely know firsthand the positive impact these awards can have on the careers of biomedical and behavioral researchers.  Current participants tell us that it most often was word-of-mouth and direct encouragement from a mentor, supervisor, or other colleague that led them to apply to the LRPs.  Often, their LRP award was what allowed them to pursue and thrive in a research career. 

 

Please share this e-mail with top researchers in your organization who may benefit from this career-enhancing opportunity.  The November 15 deadline will approach quickly.

 

BENEFITS: New extramural LRP contracts for Clinical Research, Pediatric Research, Health Disparities Research, Contraception and Infertility Research, and Clinical Research for Individuals from Disadvantaged Backgrounds are awarded for two-year periods and repay up to $35,000 of qualified educational debt annually.   An NIH grant or other NIH funding is not required to apply for or participate in the LRPs. 

 

ELIGIBILITY: Applicants must possess a doctoral-level degree (except for the Contraception and Infertility Research LRP); be a U.S. citizen, national, or permanent resident; devote 20 hours or more per week to conducting qualified research funded by a university, domestic nonprofit organization, or federal, state, or local government entity; and have qualified educational loan debt equal to or exceeding 20 percent of their institutional base salary.

 

QUESTIONS? Visit the LRP website at http://www.lrp.nih.gov for more information and to access the online application.  For additional assistance, call or e-mail the LRP Information Center at (866) 849-4047 or lrp@nih.gov.

 

Sincerely,

 

NIH Division of Loan Repayment
