Use of Funds
Funds awarded must be used towards repayment of eligible educational loans. The loan must be in a repayment phase. The Law Center will make the actual cash award to the awardee at the end of the graduate’s twelve-month public service employment (and each year thereafter at the end of the next twelve months for as long as a recipient is eligible and selected), contingent upon receipt of documentation by the employer and graduate that the graduate is still employed in a public service or governmental position. Program assistance does not automatically roll-over from one year to the next. Applicants must reapply each year to be considered for continued funding.
