In an effort to encourage and enable Penn State Law graduates to pursue careers in public interest law, the Law School has established a Loan Repayment and Assistance Program (LRAP) that can assist qualified graduates working in public interest law with their loan repayment obligations.
Students and alumni of the Penn State University Dickinson School of Law may apply during their third year of law school or in the two-year period following graduation. A student or graduate must meet the program's eligibility requirements to apply for LRAP.
Please view the LRAP Operating Guidelines and selection procedures for more information on eligibility and selection procedures. To apply, download the LRAP Application and mail a complete application packet to Penn State Law, 105 Lewis Katz Building, University Park, PA 16802, or fax (814) 867-0405. The deadline for submission of applications is June 1 and December 1, annually. For more information, please contact Susan Bogart at (814) 863-0469 or via e-mail.
Note: In accordance with the Program’s Operating Guidelines, the Law School is not currently making new awards. We hope to have a revamped program up and running in 2019.
