University of Washington School of Law Accepting Applications for Loan Repayment Assistance
May 7, 2024 | Erin Stewart

LRAP constitutes a core component of UW School of Law’s commitment to public service as a public law school by increasing the ability of its graduates to enter public service law.

Participants are required to commit to remain in qualifying public service employment for a three-year period. LRAP awards take the form of “forgivable loans.” Under the program, loans are given at the beginning of each of the three years. The first loan (for year one) will be forgiven after completing two years of qualifying employment and the additional two loans (for years two and three) will be forgiven after the applicant completes three years of qualifying employment.

UW Law loans $5,000 each to up to three new applicants per year and will commit to awarding an additional $5,000 a year for two more years for a total commitment of $15,000 per participant over the three years of the program.
