Loan Repayment Assistance Program of Minnesota (LRAP-MN)

Who It’s For: Minnesota-based law school graduates who are now employed full-time at a nonprofit agency providing legal advice or representation to low-income clients.

How to Apply: You can find their application materials here, though they only accept applications during a limited period of time each year.

What Loans Qualify: Loans that were used to pay for the relevant legal education, including undergraduate and law school. Priority is given to federal loans but other institutional loans may also be considered. Loans from family or other private sources are not eligible.

How Much?: This program is designed to go hand-in-hand with Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF). LRAP-MN recipients sign up for an income-driven payment plan in order to qualify for PSLF, then LRAP-MN contributes a percentage of that monthly payment amount.

Anything Else I Should Know?:  This is a fairly complex program, so it’s a good idea to read the program guidelines closely before you apply.
