Loan Repayment Assistance for law school grads at nonprofits
LOAN REPAYMENT ASSISTANCE
Montana Justice Foundation recently opened the funding cycle for its Loan Repayment Assistance Program for law school graduates employed in nonprofit organizations dedicated to serving low-income individuals and families in Montana. Applications need to be submitted prior to Dec. 8, 2022. Funds will be disbursed in January. Benefits are non-taxable under federal law and structured as a one-year loan forgiven annually provided the recipient remains employed full time with a qualifying employer. A maximum of $2,500 per year is available to approved applicants and funds are disbursed twice per year in six month increments.
Nonprofits interested in applying to become a qualified employer (for purposes of eligibility for staff attorneys) can contact Alissa Chambers, email@example.com. Applicants can learn more and apply directly at www.mtjustice.org/our-work. MJF thanks all of the attorneys working to provide access to justice for all Montanans.
