Martha Mordini Rukavina Loan Forgiveness Program
The Martha Mordini Rukavina Loan Forgiveness Program is funded by the Iron Range Resources and Rehabilitation Board (IRRRB) to help dentists pay back educational loans if they are willing to practice in the Taconite Assistance Area (TAA) of northeastern Minnesota for at least five years. There are four dentists in the TAA who have benefited from this program, which started before the Minnesota Dental Foundation assumed responsibility of the program. One grant for $120,000 should be available by July 1, 2015. Please check back then.
