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.

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.
