A Washington Post column about the forward-thinking philanthropy of Miles Rubin, mentions the Loan Repayment Assistance Program that he and his wife Nancy Rubin established at Stanford Law School 20 years ago:

Throughout his long and varied career history, Rubin has displayed an uncanny knack for making money and converting that cash to public good. Examples include the Miles and Nancy Rubin Loan Repayment Assistance Program that he and his wife, former ambassador Nancy Rubin, onetime U.S. representative to the U.N. Commission on Human Rights, established at Stanford Law School in 1987.

The loan repayment program was designed to ease the tuition burden on law students who chose to pay for their education through several years of public service. It was the template for similar educational assistance programs that followed.
