Up to twenty thousand dollars in grants will be available to be awarded to Iowa Law School seniors (from three to five students) to facilitate their engaging in public interest legal work. The funds for these grants have been made available from private donations through the Iowa Law School Foundation. To be eligible for the Public Interest Law Foundation Grant, a student must have accumulated substantial indebtedness from student loans and must demonstrate a commitment to pursuing public interest legal work. An applicant must have graduated in December 2012, or will graduate in May, June, or August 2013. For purposes of this grant, “public interest legal
work” means work for an employer that pays a low starting salary and that is either an Internal Revenue Code § 501(c)(3) entity or an agency of government. Deadline is June 5th 2013. You can drop off applications to the Financial Aid Office 276 BLB or e-mail to email@example.com
The Iowa Law School Classes of 1987 and 1988 established the Public Interest Law Award to honor and support Iowa Law School graduates who choose to enter the field of public interest law. The award provides annual grants of $500 or more, which will be used to reduce student loans that recipients of the award, have accumulated during their legal education. To be considered for this award, each applicant must comply with the following requirements: The applicant must graduate during the year of the award for which he or she is applying (i.e., 20011-2012 recipients must be a December 2012, May 2013, June 2013, or August 2013 graduate). The applicant must demonstrate the procurement of employment in public interest law, an area that includes but is not limited to legal assistance groups, public defender offices, special interest and minority group advocates, and civil liberties unions. The applicant’s starting and projected annual salary derived from the employment described above must be less than 125% of the standard maintenance allowance (“SMA”) that is set each year by the U.S. Department of Labor. For the 2013 year, 125% of the “non high cost area” SMA is $48,387 and $55,758 for large “high cost” metropolitan areas. The applicant must demonstrate the existence of more than $5,000 of outstanding debts, which have been incurred in the form of loans, used to finance his or her legal education. Deadline is June 5th 2013. You can drop off applications to the Financial Aid Office 276 BLB or you can e-mail applications to firstname.lastname@example.org

Student borrowers must complete exit counseling to obtain an official transcript from the University of Iowa Registrar’s Office.
