Quick question...

With the perkins, one of the reasons you can request a deferment is for "Graduate Fellowship".

Does this (or whatever other portion of the terms) mean that we can defer our Perkins Loans during Residency??

The graduate fellowship deferment for a Perkins Loan is for fellowship-supported study outside of the U.S. This includes things like a Rhodes or Fullbright Scholarship but I don't think it would include a medical fellowship.
