The Texas Law Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP) provides financial assistance to Texas Law graduates with educational debt who enter qualifying public service and meet other qualifying criteria (see Program Guidelines). The LRAP provides forgivable loans to program participants on a semi-annual basis. Participants must use funds from these LRAP loans to make payments toward their outstanding law school educational loans. Participants must remain in qualifying employment and meet the other program requirements for the six-month period covered by the LRAP loan. LRAP loans will be forgiven on a semi-annual basis.
Participants are required to sign a Promissory Note prior to receiving LRAP funds, setting forth their obligation to repay program loans that are not subsequently forgiven.
Successful applicants will be graduates of the Texas Law JD program and must apply within two years of graduation, or within three years of graduation if accepted to a judicial clerkship or public interest fellowship immediately following graduation.
