The Faculty Loan Repayment Program (FLRP) Application Cycle for the 2013-2014 School Year will be open until June 27, 7:30 pm ET.
The Faculty Loan Repayment Program is administered by the Bureau of Clinician Recruitment and Service (BCRS) in the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). FLRP provides individuals who have an interest in receiving loan repayment, while serving as a faculty member in an accredited and eligible health professions school. FLRP participants contribute to the Health Resources and Services Administration’s, Bureau of Clinician Recruitment and Service’s goal of increasing the recruitment and retention of health professions faculty. Supporting careers for health professions educators is vital for preparing the next generation of health care professionals, and the FLRP encourages participants to promote careers in their respective health care fields.
FLRP applicants must be from a disadvantaged background, have an eligible health professions degree or certificate, and have an employment commitment to be a faculty member at an approved health professions institution for a minimum of two (2) years (see “Eligibility Requirements, Funding Preferences and Application Process” section).
