I'm currently working as a pharmacist and while in school I worked as an intern in a retail pharmacy. The company offered yearly scholarship. I took the scholarship each year for a total of four years. Every year I would sign a contract that I would work for the company as a pharmacist. So I took the scholarship for 4 years which means I should work for 4 years. I worked a total of 3 and a 1/2 years and had to resign because of traveling expenses. Now the company wants me to pay back the entire amount ($9000 ) because i didn't complete the 4 years. I think I should only pay back for the 4th year ($3000). The contract I signed was for a yearly contract not a 4 year contract. The company states that they don't take into consideration partial worked years. What do I do? I cannot afford to repay that amount due to student loans and so forth.
