Loan Repayment Assistance Program

IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law is committed to making public interest career options, including human rights, civil rights and liberties, social justice, access to justice, domestic violence, and anti-discrimination work, available to its graduates. One challenge to a public interest career is high educational debt. Chicago-Kent responded by creating the Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP). The Mission of the LRAP is to 1) help alumni in low-paying public interest jobs re-pay their student loan debt and 2) encourage current students to pursue a public interest career.

In order to ensure that alumni in public interest and government positions with the greatest need receive funds, there are employment, debt and income requirements for an LRAP award.

For more information about LRAP or the application process, you can review the 2015 LRAP application, or contact the Office of Career Services at (312) 906-5200 or kentcso@kentlaw.iit.edu to learn more. Applications for the 2017 LRAP will be available in the fall of 2016.
