Applications are now being taken for the USDA’s Veterinary Medicine Loan Repayment Program (VMLRP). The program helps qualified veterinarians offset a significant portion of the debt incurred in pursuit of their veterinary medicine degrees in return for their service in certain high-priority veterinary shortage situations. If you commit to at least three years to providing veterinary services in a designated veterinary shortage area, NIFA may repay up to $25,000 of your student loan debt per year.
Where are the shortages? CLICK HERE to see the “2010 Designated Shortage Situations.”
For more information, visit the National Institute of Food and Agriculture website.
Applications for the current cycle are being taken from April 30 to June 30.
