Widener Law is committed to training our students for service in the public interest. We want graduates to have the opportunity to pursue public interest careers regardless of financial considerations. Under the Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP), students will be afforded the opportunity to pursue their career goals without the undue pressures of making loan payments.
Graduates must apply to the program within three years of their graduation, and must secure a position with a non-profit organization that provides a legal service which benefits the community, underrepresented groups, or indigent persons. Preference will be given to graduates working in non-governmental positions when making awards. Grants are provided upon acceptance into the program to cover monthly law school loan debt payments for up to 36 months for loans which were certified by an ABA-accredited law school financial aid office. Payment will be made in the form of reimbursement for previous month's payment made by the student.
Graduates with an annual salary of up to $50,000 are eligible to apply for LRAP benefits.Download Application and Information
