Loan Repayment Assistance Programs are available from the federal government for many who choose to pursue work in areas of high need.
Is there a federal LRAP for me?
Various programs exist for those who perform certain volunteer work; those in military service; those who teach; those who practice medicine in certain types of communities; and those who practice law as a state or local prosecutor or as a public defender.
Each program has its own eligibility criteria and application process.
- For more information on specific programs, visit the Loan Forgiveness Page at FinAid.org.
- Learn about the John R. Justice Student Loan Repayment Program for state and federal public defenders and state prosecutors.
Don’t forget: Public Service Loan Forgiveness is for everyone with high student debt and low salaries working in qualifying public service employment, including in government or 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations.
