Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP)

Although those still enrolled at Fletcher are not yet eligible, students should know about the Tufts Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP). The Tufts Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP) is a university-wide program that helps selected Tufts graduates working in public service to repay a portion of their annual education loan debt. Believed to be the first university-wide program of this kind in the country, the purpose of Tufts LRAP is to encourage and enable Tufts graduates to pursue careers in public service by reducing the extent to which their educational debt is a barrier to working in comparatively low-salaried jobs in the public and non-profit sectors. Information about the program can be found on the LRAP website.

  • In recent years, over 90 percent of the Fletcher graduates applying for loan assistance received an award.
  • Loan assistance awards typically range from $500 to $6,000.
  • The average loan assistance award in 2016 for Fletcher graduates was $1,571.
