    The National Health Service Corps (NHSC) Students to Service Loan
    Repayment Program (S2S LRP) provides loan repayment assistance to

    Ambassadors and other partners who work directly with eligible
    applicants (medical students entering their 4th year), to participate
    in our upcoming FY 2014 Pre-Application Overview Teleconference. The
    NHSC will provide an overview of the S2S LRP, including information
    regarding eligibility, benefits and the application process.

    Prior to the call, we recommend that you review the Students to
    Service Loan Repayment Program website to familiarize yourself with
    its opportunities and requirements.  We also recommend that you review
    the S2S LRP Application and Program Guidance (APG)  from last year’s
    FY 2013 S2S LRP application cycle, as a reference to obtain a better
    understanding of the Program requirements and application process.
    Please note that each year, the APG is updated to reflect current
    Program requirements.
