Loan Repayment Assistance Program

UIC John Marshall Law School has created a Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP) to assist graduates working in qualified public interest employment. The program recognizes the fact that government and public interest jobs offer excellent opportunities for John Marshall graduates, but the necessity of paying school loans and the lower pay levels of these jobs can discourage graduates from pursuing these positions. The maximum total award a graduate may receive under LRAP is $5,000 per year. The number of awards that are granted is dependent on budget and available funding.

LRAP at John Marshall was established with a generous donation from the Law School Board of Trustees. Additionally, in March 2009, students voted to adopt a per-semester fee of $10 per student to be applied to the LRAP fund. Although the generous donation by the Board of Trustees is a great beginning to remedying the issue, much more is needed to help this essential program continue.

If you are interested in applying for loan forgiveness please review the eligibility requirements and application by clicking on the links to the right. Please note that completed applications are due by November 19, 2018.
