Texas Student Loan Repayment Assistance Program

The Texas Student Loan Repayment Assistance Program (Texas SLRAP) was created by the Texas Access to Justice Commission in 2003 to assist attorneys who choose to pursue legal aid careers in Texas. The Texas SLRAP is funded by the State Bar of Texas and the Texas Access to Justice Foundation.

Low legal aid salaries coupled with high student loan debt make it difficult or impossible to have a career in legal aid. The Texas SLRAP is a critical part of alleviating this burden and increasing access to justice for low-income individuals.

Texas Student Loan Repayment Assistance Program Application Process, 2021-2022

The Texas Access to Justice Foundation is now offering the annual application for the Texas SLRAP. The deadline for the application is 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, April 15, 2021. If you have questions, please contact Gina Richardson or Lisa Melton.
