Health Professional Recruitment Program (HPRP) is an innovative loan repayment program for D.O., D.P.M., D.P.T., OTD and PA graduates. Through a combination of state funding and money from communities in need of health care providers, HPRP can reduce your student debt up to $100,000. In exchange for four years of full-time service in an eligible rural community, Iowa College Aid may award up to $50,000 toward your student loans, which then must be matched by the employer, hospital or community.  State funds will pay 25% of the benefit after each year of employment for four years.  After fulfilling the four-year commitment, you are welcome to continue practicing in the community or seek opportunities elsewhere.
