Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP)

Program Overview

The University of Illinois College of Law is committed to encouraging its graduates to pursue public interest careers. The burden of law school debt can hinder students from choosing meaningful, low paying careers in public service, government, and nonprofit organizations, and LRAP gives graduates more flexibility in career selection by offering partial loan forgiveness to qualifying applicants.

LRAP recipients receive partial loan forgiveness, and all graduates who choose qualifying work are eligible to apply through the annual application process.
