Applications for the John R. Justice Student Loan Repayment Program are due March 31 to the Office of the Indiana Attorney General.

Indiana has received $181,746 in federal funding available to attorneys in the state. It will be disbursed in amounts of $2,000 to $4,000 to prosecutors and public defenders who make a commitment to be in their positions for at least three years from the date the award is given.

The program’s website defines prosecutors and public defenders for purposes of this program. The attorney general’s website also has more information about what loans are eligible for repayment through the John R. Justice program.

The application form is available now. Applications, employer verification form, loan verification forms and account statement(s), and cover letter highlighting public service and a commitment to continued public service for at least three years, should be sent to JRJ Program, c/o Office of the Indiana Attorney General, 302 W.
