The National Center on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NCMHD) is 
pleased to announce funding for the Extramural Clinical Research Loan 
Repayment Program for Individuals from Disadvantaged Backgrounds (“ECR-LRP” 
or “Program”).  The ECR-LRP provides for repayment of the educational loan 
debt of qualified health professionals from disadvantaged backgrounds who 
agree to conduct clinical research for an obligated period of service no less 
than two years.  

The NCMHD, through the Program, seeks to recruit and retain highly qualified 
health professionals from disadvantaged backgrounds into clinical research 
careers.  This is an effort to not only have qualified health professionals 
impact the medical processes within their communities, but also to engage and 
promote the development of clinical research programs that reflect an 
understanding of the variety of issues and problems associated with 
disparities in health status.

Research Investigators interested in participating in the ECR-LRP are 
encouraged to contact the NCMHD to obtain an application package regarding 
this Program as well as review the information located at:
