Continue to Serve Your Community and Pay Off More Educational Debt

Many Corps members choose to continue serving their communities and receive additional funds to repay their loans once their current service commitment is over. If you decide to remain at your NHSC-approved site once your initial service commitment ends, you may be eligible for a continuation contract. By extending your contract, you agree to continue your NHSC service commitment for 1 year, and the NHSC agrees to provide additional funds for the repayment of your qualifying educational loans.
