Posted on October 3, 2012
Veterinarians can receive up to $35,000 annually to repay student loans through the National Institutes of Health Loan Repayment Program. An applicant must be a U.S. citizen, U.S. national, or permanent resident of the U.S. and must have a doctoral degree from an accredited institution. The program benefits individuals who are or will be conducting nonprofit biomedical or behavioral research. Opportunities are available in five research areas—clinical research, pediatric research, health disparities research, contraception and infertility research, and clinical research for individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds.
