Seeking Excellence: Building the Nephrology Pipeline

October 17, 2020

The American Society of Nephrology (ASN) is proud to announce the upcoming launch of the ASN Loan Mitigation Pilot Program.

This exciting program will launch in early 2021, and the pilot will continue for three years. ASN has committed $2,700,000 to reaching those who are considering nephrology as a career.

In the first year of the pilot, ASN will fund six applicants, reducing the loan burden for each applicant by $50,000 over three years. Year 1 awards will center on individuals racially underrepresented in medicine. When the program launches, ASN will disseminate details regarding eligibility requirements and the application process.

On behalf of the ASN Council, I thank the members of the Loan Mitigation Program Task Force, chaired by Nwamaka D. Eneanya, MD, MPH, FASN, for their guidance and thoughtful approach to crafting this pilot program. This program will help ASN reach the best and brightest candidates, committed to building the future of nephrology.
