Minnesota Department of Health (MDH)
Grants to Minnesota licensed healthcare workers to repay educational loans. Funding is intended to make it financially feasible for healthcare workers in all fields to work in underserved areas of the State. Eligible professions include doctors, pharmacists, nurses, dentists, mental health professionals, and more.
The Minnesota Loan Forgiveness Program provides funds for repayment of Qualified Educational Loans. Qualified Educational Loans include government, commercial, and foundation loans for actual costs paid for tuition, reasonable education and living expenses related to the past graduate or undergraduate education of a health care professional. Previously defaulted loans that have since been completely rehabilitated and are not currently in active default status are eligible.
This is a competitive selection process. Selections are made based on suitability for practice as indicated by personal and professional experience and training noted on an application, as well as preference given to those closest to completing their training. MDH also gives preference to applicants that can demonstrate cultural competencies. The number of applicants ORHPC may select for participation varies annually and is contingent upon the vacancy rate for each profession, and upon available state funding.
