We recognize many of our graduates balance significant educational debt with working in modest-paying public sector jobs. The HKS Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP) is designed to help our graduates—domestic and international—while working in modest-paying positions in the public or nonprofit sectors, with repaying their traditional educational loans borrowed to attend HKS.

If you qualify for the LRAP, 25 to 100 percent of your monthly payment for loans borrowed to attend HKS may be covered based on an assessment of your household income and assets. LRAP applications are accepted in October after you've graduated from HKS. You may participate in the LRAP for up to five years; you cannot receive support beyond this timeframe. 

Read our LRAP guidelines as you start to explore career opportunities after HKS and email us in the Office for Student Financial Services with questions.
