ONLINE APPLICATION FOR FIRST-TIME AND CONTINUING PARTICIPANTS


Application Type

I am a first-time applicant.
I am a continuing applicant.

This date cannot be earlier than the 1st day of the month you are submitting this application.

Track

I choose the Standard track. Only available for the graduating classes of 1997 through 2012.
I choose the Income Based Repayment (IBR) track for the entire length of my LRAP participation.
For the class of 2013 and beyond, the IBR track is your only option. To receive LRAP funding for the IBR track, your federal loans must be in the IBR or PAYE plan. You will need to provide proof of your IBR or PAYE payment amount. Once you opt for the IBR Track, you are required to remain in IBR. Please contact us at lrap@law.berkeley.edu if you are not sure which track works best for you.

You must have qualifying LRAP employment immediately following your clerkship.

While you may be eligible for LRAP, this type of employment is not eligible for Public Service Loan Forgiveness.

Loan Indebtedness Information

First time applicants must complete the information in this section for all of their educational loans (both federal and private). Use any of the spaces provided to attach documentation of your total loan balance.

Continuing applicants must complete the information in the section for private educational loans only, and attach the most recent billing statement for any private loans. For the IBR track, you must also attach your most recent billing statement listing your total IBR payment amount and due date. You should note that your IBR payment amount will change every 12 months when you recertify your income to your loan servicer. Since your IBR payment amount changes every 12 months, please provide the date you began paying your most recent IBR payment amount.
