Question on grants for veterinarians drowning in debt
posted by TheBones to Education (3 answers total) 1 user marked this as a favorite
My wife is a veterinarian and, after a year of practicing, has been accepted to a residency. While we will not have to pay for her to be a resident, we still owe an enormous amount on all of her school debts up until this point in time.
She will be going into a program to be boarded in Internal Medicine and will be starting in July.
We are making ends meet now, but once she starts, she will be taking a SIGNIFICANT pay cut. Every dollar will have to be stretched.
We are already planning on applying to put her loans in either deferment or forebearance, but that debt isn't going anywhere.
I know for post docs, there are various grants to help pay back school debt, but I was wondering if there are any grants to help veterinarians pay back federal school loans.
