A brief description of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome :

The Tufts Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP) is a university-wide program that helps selected Tufts graduates working in public service 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 LRAP is to encourage and enable Tufts graduates to pursue careers in public service and to meet an unmet need by reducing the extent to which their educational debt is a barrier to working in comparatively low-salaried jobs in the public and nonprofit sectors.
