2009-10 WCL PILRAP Application Now Available

Posted by OPI at 11:28 AM in PILRAP

Central to the educational mission of the American University Washington College of Law (WCL) is the belief that law is based on the inherent dignity of all individuals.  WCL graduates have a proud history of building upon that core belief.  As a demonstration of its ongoing commitment to see its graduates apply the law to the greater good, WCL implemented the Public Interest Loan Repayment Assistance Program (PILRAP). (continued)

PILRAP helps relieve economic burden imposed by educational debt by providing loan repayment assistance for JD graduates who work in full-time non-profit, or government in which the graduate is engaged in serving under-represented or traditionally marginalized populations.  More information about PILRAP requirements is available online.

The 2009-10 PILRAP application window is October 1 – October 30, 2009.  Award notifications will be available December 1, 2009, and the first disbursement will occur in January 2010.  To apply or learn more, visit the PILRAP website.
