Law School Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP)

If you are using your Lewis & Clark law degree to help under-represented people or causes at a government, non-profit, or tribal office with a yearly salary below $45,000, you may qualify for LRAP assistance.  Graduates first apply within the first three years following graduation and recipients may continue to apply until five years after graduation.  A full statement of rules and qualifications is available in the LRAP Description (pdf).


2014 Application Deadline Monday, June 9, 2014


  • By mid-June, graduates apply for LRAP assistance for the 2014 funding year
  • July, awards are announced and disbursements are sent.

Awards are structured as loans, and upon the recipient showing completion of a year of qualified public interest employment, LRAP loans are forgiven.  This method is designed to avoid recipient tax liability as described in Revenue Ruling 2008-34; although, you should verify your individual tax situation with a tax advisor.
