The Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP) was recently enhanced, thanks largely to a growing LRAP endowment. Now, the LRAP can provide substantially increased benefits to program participants.
THE APPLICATION DEADLINE IS NOVEMBER 1. Please click on the link below for program details and to apply.
In short, these are the changes: The income ceiling was raised to $54,000 (from $50,000). The percentage of monthly law school debt payments covered by the program also increased significantly. Finally, LRAP loans will be forgiven much more quickly. One third of LRAP loans will be forgiven after a single year of public service work, and the program loans will be fully forgiven after just three years of public service work.
Those changes should more than double the total annual benefits paid by LRAP, and they should make public service work possible for more graduates.
