39.325 Wisconsin health education loan program.

(1) There is established, to be administered by the board, a Wisconsin health education loan program under P.L. 94-484, on July 29, 1979, in order to provide financial aid to medical and dentistry students enrolled in the University of Wisconsin Medical School, the Medical College of Wisconsin or Marquette University School of Dentistry.

(2) The board shall lend to students who qualify under sub. (1) any moneys appropriated or authorized through the issuance of revenue obligations. The board shall require a student borrowing moneys under this section to pay interest while in medical or dental school and during his or her residency training at the rate of at least 3 percent per year on the sum of the principal amount of the student's obligation and the accumulated interest, unless federal law provides otherwise as a condition of guaranteeing the loan. Principal and interest payable on maturing revenue obligations shall, when necessary, be paid from funded reserves, authorized under subch. II of ch. 18, or from moneys made available under chapter 20, laws of 1981, section 2022 (1).

(3) The board shall promulgate rules and establish standards and methods of determining the amounts of loans, rates of interest and other administrative procedures consistent with P.L. 94-484, on July 29, 1979. The rates of interest shall be set as low as possible, but shall remain sufficient to cover all costs of the program under this section.
