On July 3, 2023, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) released Notice NOT-OD-23-147: Extramural Loan Repayment Program for Contraception and Infertility Research (LRP-CIR).
The notice provides program-specific information about LRP-CIR, which is designed to recruit highly qualified health professionals into careers in contraception and/or infertility research at the National Institutes of Health.
From the notice:
"The NIH invites qualified health professionals who contractually agree to engage in NIH mission-relevant research for an average of at least 20 hours each week for at least two years, initially, to apply for an award in the Extramural LRP. The Extramural LRP repays up to $50,000 annually of a researcher's qualified educational debt in return for a commitment to engage in NIH mission-relevant research at a domestic, nonprofit, or government entity. Research funding from NIH is not required to participate in the Extramural LRP. LRP awards are based on an applicant's potential to build and sustain a research career.
Extramural LRP applications will be accepted from September 1 until November 16, 2023. All LRP applications must be submitted electronically using the Application Submission System & Interface for Submission Tracking (ASSIST): https://public.era.nih.gov/assist/."
