Apply to the National Health Service Corps Loan Repayment Program by March 30 

Primary care medical, dental and mental/behavioral health clinicians can get $50,000 to repay their health profession student loans in exchange for a two-year commitment to work at an approved NHSC site in a high-need, underserved area. The payment is free from Federal income tax and is made at the beginning of service so you can more quickly pay down your loans. Approved sites are located across the U.S., in both urban and rural areas.After completing your initial service commitment, you can apply to extend your service and receive additional loan repayment assistance.
The amount you receive and length of your commitment depends on where you serve (service at sites in higher need areas yields greater loan repayments). It also depends on whether you select the full-time or half-time option. See the 2015 Application and Program Guidance (PDF - 383 KB) for details. See if your site is already approved at the NHSC Jobs Center.

For more information or to complete an application, visit the NHSC website; Applications are accepted through Mrach 30, 2015.
