Physical therapists from disadvantaged backgrounds can apply for up to $40,000 in student loan assistance through the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Faculty Loan Repayment Program (FLRP). Applications now are being accepted for the program, which offers health professions faculty, including physical therapists, the opportunity to pay off qualified student loans. FLRP is designed to increase the recruitment and retention of health professions faculty with the goal of preparing the next generation of health care professionals. In return for loan assistance, accepted applicants will provide 2 years of service at an approved health professions institution.
Deadline for applications is June 27, 2013. For more information or to apply, visit the FLRP website.
APTA continues its public policy priority to include physical therapists in additional student loan repayment initiatives.
