Loan Repayment Assistance Program
To support graduates in their public interest career choices, the Law School offers a Loan Repayment Assistance Program that extends interest-free loans to repay law school debt. Loans are gradually forgiven while recipients remain in qualifying employment. We also offer fellowships for graduates working in eligible government, nonprofit, and public interest legal positions. These fellowships support new graduates for a year or more as they begin their careers.
- $100,000 permanently endows a named fellowship or public service and human rights summer internships.
- $5,000 funds one student for a public interest summer fellowship.
