VMLRP Program Summary

The Veterinary Medicine Loan Repayment Program is pleased to share their comprehensive Program Summary, 2010-2022.  

Since 2010 NIFA's VMLRP has served the needs of food animal veterinarians and stakeholders in animal agriculture across the nation by supporting veterinary educational debt repayment in return for veterinarians’ services in designated, high priority, shortage situations. In this time, the VMLRP has made nearly 800 awards to food animal veterinarians for loan repayment assistance.

The VMLRP is pleased to provide our stakeholders with the VMLRP Program Summary 2010-2022, based on data collected by the program on veterinary shortage situations, applications, and awards. This report includes an overview of the VMLRP and summarizes trends and activities of the program to respond to the needs of state and insular area animal health officials, food animal veterinarians, food and fiber animal producers, and other interested stakeholders, and includes program highlights and accomplishments.

Your feedback is important to us.
