What is the LRP Ambassador Program?
The LRP Ambassador Program is a network of former and current LRP awardees that promote the NIH LRPs within their local extramural scientific community.
What does an LRP Ambassador do?
LRP Ambassadors serve as a personalized link/connection between the Division of Loan Repayment (DLR) and potential applicants at their home institutions by Identifying potential eligible applicants to the LRPs within their institutions and sharing information about the LRPs with them.
Since the Ambassador Program is being updated, all ambassadors must provide their current information to gain access to the Ambassador Resources on this page that are password-protected. Click on the "Become an LRP Ambassador" button to connect to the sign-up form. Login information will be emailed to you following sign-up.
Find an LRP Ambassador
If you are an LRP applicant, you can view the Ambassador Directory to find an Ambassador at an institution near you.
If you are an Ambassador, you can use the Ambassador Directory to find other Ambassadors at an institution near you.
The directory is password-protected. You can request access to the directory by email.
LRP Ambassador Resources
LRP Ambassadors can access resources here to better understand their role and to effectively conduct outreach to potential applicants. Resources includes a toolkit that provides an overview of the LRP Ambassador Program and a wide array of tools: a presentation about the LRPs; and information about how to order print materials. This section of the page is password-protected for Ambassadors only.
Ramon B., MD
“The LRP program has connected me to a network of phenomenal scientists across the country which has opened up potential collaborations and future grant applications. The ability to pay off student loans more than a decade in advance has really provided tremendous financial flexibility to remain in an academic research faculty position”
Fatima S., MD
“The LRP has dramatically reduced the burden of student loans while allowing me to fulfill my life dream of conducting research as an obesity medicine researcher. I have encouraged many of my mentees and colleagues to apply for the LRP, and the LRP has served as a springboard board outstanding research careers”
Kristen M., DrPH, CPPS
“The award provided me the confidence and clout to move forward with multiple grant applications and a transition to a Senior Research Scientist position with the leading human factors research team in the nation”
