Global Health Service Corps

Debt Repayment

Historically, many health professionals interested in providing service - either domestically or abroad to socially and economically disadvantaged populations - face financial challenges from compounding educational debt and personal commitments. GHSC aims to build on the legacy of domestic federal programs such as the National Health Service Corps to assist with education indebtedness. GHSC will provide loan repayment support to eligible individuals for each year served in the Global Health Service Partnership and health service abroad.

In addition, the Global Health Service Corps stipend will be available to help offset other personal financial burden like mortgages.

Our goal is to encourage service by the best-qualified individuals, including those who may have financial constraints to service. The GHSC will provide stipends of up to $30,000 (this amount is subject to change) for each year served in the joint GHSP program to individuals with documented educational loans or other personal financial burdens. 

Individuals with educational loans less than $30,000 will receive a stipend to cover the full amount of their remaining education loans. The stipend application process for individuals seeking support for expenses other than loans is under development.
