National Institutes of Health Loan Repayment Programs (LRPs)

Deadline: November 15, 2013

NIH wants to encourage outstanding health professionals to pursue careers in biomedical, behavioral, social, and clinical research. If you commit at least two years to conducting qualified research funded by a domestic nonprofit organization or U.S. federal, state, or local government entity, NIH may repay up to $35,000 of your qualified student loan debt per year, including most undergraduate, graduate, and medical school loans.

PCORI Pipeline to Proposal Award program

The Pipeline to Proposal Award Program is designed to support the development of partnerships between researchers and others within the healthcare community, including individual clinicians and clinician groups. We believe that this program will lead to proposals for patient-centered outcomes research generated by clinicians and others within the healthcare community. The first funding opportunity is the “Tier I Pipeline Awards” for the 13-state US Western Region. These awards are for up to $15,000 and focus on building the community of patients, stakeholders, and researchers. PCORI plans to invite applications for Tier I Pipeline Awards in other areas of the country in early 2014. Click here for more information.
