 Public Service Loan Forgiveness

Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) Program


The PSLF Program was established to encourage individuals to enter and remain in public service jobs. The program allows eligible borrowers to cancel the remaining balance of their Direct Loans after serving full time at a public service organization for at least 10 years while making 120 qualifying monthly payments. Visit FedLoan Servicing for more information.




As college tuition costs continue to rise, it is still possible to offset some of the costs of earning a public health degree by tapping into a variety of available scholarships and grants. To help students find more information, our guide dissects a sample listing of undergraduate, graduate, and specialized scholarships.
