Does Georgetown University Law Center have a loan repayment assistance program (LRAP)?
Yes. Georgetown has a nationally recognized loan repayment program that benefits JD graduates who enter into certain legally related public interest or government employment following graduation. Graduates may be eligible to receive funds, in the form of interest-free forgivable loans, which assist them in paying for all or part of their monthly loan repayment obligations.
These programs began in 2009 and provide significant benefits to many graduates choosing to pursue certain careers, especially in the government or public service sectors. Read more about the program in the Georgetown Law Guide to Income-Based Repayment and Federal Public Service Loan Forgiveness.
