IU McKinney Makes First LRAP Awards
The inaugural awardees for the IU Robert H. McKinney School of Law Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP) have been announced. The are: Carrie Lynn ’07, staff attorney for Indiana Legal Services in Indianapolis; Mohammed Tareq Nazamy ’09, team leader/assistant coordinator for Marion County Alternative Courts; and Danielle Underwood ’08, staff attorney for Indiana Legal Services in Ft. Wayne.
The LRAP Endowment is the culmination of years of advocacy by the law school's chapter of Equal Justice Works. For the past decade the group has worked to make loan repayment assistance a reality for law students who wish to practice public interest law. Fundraisers include the annual Equal Justice Works Public Interest Dinner with the proceeds from ticket sales going directly to ensure the LRAP Endowment.
Awards are initially made as loans that are then forgiven provided all program eligibility criteria are met at the end of the 12-month award period. For more information, visit the LRAP website or contact Sonja Rice, ’07, d irector of special projects at firstname.lastname@example.org or 317-274-8043.
