Student Loan Repayment & Forgiveness

Student Loan Repayment

Federal agencies are permitted to repay federally-insured student loans as a recruitment and retention incentive. The benefit is limited  to $10,000 per calendar year and $60,000 total for an employee. This benefit depends on position or role at ASPR. It is not guaranteed. If you receive this benefit, you must sign a three-year service  agreement and maintain acceptable performance.
