The IHS Loan Repayment Program (LRP) accepts applications year-round. Applications are evaluated monthly beginning in January or as soon as funds become available. Successful applicants must begin their service obligation no later than September 30 of the fiscal year in which they receive an LRP award.
How to Complete the Application
The Loan Repayment Online Application is for new, first-time applicants. You will progress step by step through the application. When you are finished, you will have the opportunity to review your application carefully before submitting. LRP applications must be complete and include all required support documentation. Incomplete applications are not eligible for consideration.
For security reasons, your application session will timeout after 30 minutes of inactivity. If your application times out, any progress you've made on your form will be lost. Please have any application materials (e.g. references, financial information) prepared ahead of time.
Before you proceed, please make sure you have the required documents necessary to complete your application.
