Nurse Faculty Loan Program (NFLP)

Funding Agency:
Health Resources and Services Administration

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. 

If you are interested in this funding opportunity please contact Barbara Turner, barbara.turner@duke.edu or Wendy Conklin wendy.conklin@duke.edu by Nov. 29, 2019.

Deadline:  Feb. 3, 2020
