HRSA Offers New Loan Repayment Opportunity for PA Students

Interested Students: Apply by Dec. 2

September 3, 2021

In 2020, AAPA and PAEA requested in a joint letter to the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), that PA students be added to the list of health professions eligible for the HRSA National Health Service Corps’ (NHSC) Student to Service Loan Repayment Program.

We are pleased that PA students can apply this year. PA students may qualify for up to $120,000 in tax-free loan repayment for PA school student loans in exchange for a three-year service commitment in a high-need rural, tribal, or urban community.

The deadline to apply for this loan repayment program is Thursday, Dec. 2 at 7:30 pm ET. For more information, please visit the NHSC’s Student to Service Loan Repayment Program page.

NHSC will be holding Q&A sessions prior to the November deadline. Attend an upcoming event to learn more. Save the date!
