LRAP & Debt Relief

Valparaiso University Law School offers a Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP) to recent graduates that are currently working in the public interest sector. The LRAP was developed to provide financial assistance to Valparaiso Law graduates that have accumulated a substantial amount of student loan debt from educational loans. The program provides assistance for up to three years following graduation, if a graduate holds a full-time, law-related position in the public interest sector, and meets the LRAP’s eligibility requirements.

If you are working in the public sector on a full time basis and have student loan debt from educational loans, you are encouraged to apply for the LRAP. Along with your application, you must provide a letter from your employer verifying both your employment and annual gross salary.

For additional Student Loan Debt Relief programs available nationally, review Equal Justice Works resources page.
