LSU Law anticipates awarding upwards of $5,000 each to 10 alumni this year through the Loan Repayment Assistance Program that was launched last year with generous support from the Kendall Vick Public Law Foundation.
The goal of the program is to help remove the barriers to public interest practice faced by recent graduates who have incurred significant debt to finance their legal education. To be eligible, alumni must have graduated within the past five years and be employed in eligible public service positions in Louisiana, among other requirements.
Last May, five recent LSU Law graduates who work in public service positions in Louisiana each received $5,000 as the first recipients of the program: ReAzalia Allen (’15), Teddi Buller (’19), Alex Hertenstein (’16), David Hogan (‘18) and Fahreta Muminovic (’15). LSU Law LRAP recipients from last year will also be considered for new awards.
The deadline to apply is April 1. See the complete eligibility requirements, the documents needed to apply, and apply online. For more information, contact Gigi Gauthier at email@example.com or 225-578-0733.
