Nurse Faculty Loan Program (NFLP)
The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2020 Nurse Faculty Loan Program (NFLP). The purpose of this program is to increase the number of qualified nursing faculty by supporting schools of nursing to establish and operate a student loan fund in accordance with the terms outlined in the authorizing statute. Recipient institutions shall make loans to individuals consistent with that purpose, and an amount up to 85 percent of any such loan (plus interest thereon) shall be canceled by the school, according to the schedule prescribed in statute, upon completion of up to four years of full-time employment as a nurse faculty member in an accredited school of nursing.
The FY 2020 President’s Budget does not request funding for this program. This notice is a contingency action taken to ensure that, should funds become available for this purpose, HRSA can process applications and award funds in a timely manner. You should note that this program may be cancelled prior to award.
Multiple applications from an institution are allowable; however, applicants can submit only one application per campus. A campus is defined as a division of a university that has its own grounds, buildings (e.g., school of nursing) and faculty.
Deadline: Feb. 3, 2020
Eligible applicants are accredited schools of nursing, including advanced education nursing programs.
HRSA expects approximately $26.8 million to be available annually to fund approximately 90 recipients. The FY 2019 President’s Budget does not request funding for this program. The actual amount available will not be determined until enactment of the final FY 2019 federal appropriation. This program notice is subject to the appropriation of funds, and is a contingency action taken to ensure that, should funds become available for this purpose, HRSA can process applications and award funds in a timely manner. The period of performance is July 1, 2019, through June 30, 2020 (1 year).
