Doctors Can Now Receive Grant Money To Pay Their Student Loans!

Because of the devasting effects of Hurricane Katrina there has been a new incentive put in place to provide grant money for doctors who agree to work in area. Financial incentives up to $100,000 are being offered to doctors, dentists and other medical professionals to work in the New Orleans area after the devastating effects of Hurricane Katrina. This grant program was also put in place to lure more medical professionals to the area because so many of them left to find good paying work elsewhere. These incentives include student loan repayments and guarentees of income for the medical professionals who agree to practice in the area.

So far over 80 medical professionals (including nurses) have been awarded the grants (again up to $100,000 per recipient) and the government has allocated a LOT more money to finance this incentive program!

If you are a health professional and are interested in this program you can find out more about this grant program by going to their website.
