Loan Repayment Assistance Program
Alumni from all schools who work for a nonprofit organization may apply for help repaying a portion of their annual education loan bills. 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 and meeting an unmet need by reducing the extent to which their educational debt is a barrier to working in comparatively low-salaried jobs in the non-profit and public sectors.

Tufts Public Health and Professional Degree Programs Alumni are eligible to take one PHPD course a year, a maximum of 3 overall, for 25% of the tuition rate of the course. Alumni are welcome to take more than one course year, but only one at the discounted rate. For a list of courses, click here.
