The Department of Justice Attorney Student Loan Repayment Program (ASLRP) is an agency recruitment and retention incentive program based on 5 U.S. C. § 5379, as amended, and 5 CFR Part 537. The Department selects participants during an annual open season each spring. Any Justice employee serving in or hired to serve in an attorney position may request consideration for the ASLRP. The Department anticipates selecting new attorneys each year for participation on a competitive basis and renewing current beneficiaries during existing service obligations, subject to availability of funds. ASLRP benefits are paid directly to the loan holder, not to the individual attorney. Initial acceptance of ASLRP funding triggers a three-year service obligation to Justice. To receive ASLRP benefits, the attorney must qualify, the attorney's student loans must qualify, and all statutory requirements must be met. Attorneys who do not complete their service obligation must repay the Department for all funds received through the ASLRP. Please review the ASLRP Policy for more details.
THE 2015 ATTORNEY STUDENT LOAN REPAYMENT PROGRAM
The annual open season to request participation in the Attorney Student Loan Repayment Program opened in March 2015. As of July 13, 2015, fifty-eight attorneys selected for participation this year have been notified and have confirmed their participation. Attorneys who were not selected are encouraged to apply again next year.
