LOAN REPAYMENT ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (LRAP)
I am in a 1-year clerkship.
You must have qualifying LRAP employment immediately following your clerkship.
I am applying for the LRAP Low Bono/Union coverage.
While you may be eligible for LRAP, this type of employment is not eligible for Public Service Loan Forgiveness. Please include a statement or proof that at least 50% of the work of the firm and the applicant involves providing legal services on a pro-bono, reduced fee, or court awarded fee basis to underrepresented persons or organizations.
Name (First, Middle, Last, Suffix) (required)
I am a continuing applicant and my current and permanent addresses have not changed.
Contact Information - Please fill in both current and permanent address completely.
Did you enter Berkeley Law as a transfer student?
Please list two references who will always know where to contact you and do not reside at the same address (e.g. relatives or friends).
I am a continuing applicant and my references have not changed.
Are you a continuing applicant and receiving support for a private loan? Please attach your most recent billing statement for private loans.
For the IDR track, please attach your most recent IDR approval letter or statement which should show your approved monthly payment amount and when that payment amount expires.
Because your IDR payment amount will change every 12 months when you
recertify your income to renew your IDR plan,
please provide the date you anticipate your IDR payment amount will change.
This will ensure that your LRAP award is as accurate as possible.

All applicants must submit an Employer Verification Form, as well as a published job description if
the official job posting does not indicate that a J.D. is required.
For participants on the IDR track, please submit or email proof of your monthly IDR payment amount. This documentation should include when that payment amount began and when it expires.
Additional documentation may be requested and can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. The length of your participation based on this application is subject to the discretion of the Financial Aid Office but is typically granted in 6 to 12 month participation periods.
