New LIPP changes announced

BY JON LAMBERSON

The Low Income Protection Plan Committee recently approved some significant changes to the LIPP program. Starting in July 2003, LIPP will cover up to $30,000 of combined undergraduate debt and debt incurred while pursuing a joint degree program at another Harvard graduate school. Debt from non-Harvard graduate programs or non-joint degree graduate programs remains ineligible under LIPP. The committee also approved a change to the contribution scale, reducing the annual contribution for graduates earning over $46,000. LIPP is available for HLS J.D. program graduates who work full time in government, non-profit or academic jobs or in law-related private sector employment.
