Joyce Holsey's ALL (Arizona's Legal Legacy) - Loan Repayment Assistance Program
To honor Joyce Holsey and all that her life represented, the Arizona Foundation for Legal Services & Education, the James E. Rogers College of Law at the University of Arizona, the Sandra Day O'Connor School of Law at Arizona State University, and legal aid programs throughout Arizona created a loan repayment assistance program. Contributions to the Joyce Holsey Loan Repayment Assistance Program support those who dedicate their careers to giving others a voice in our justice system.
The Joyce Holsey's Loan Repayment Program was created to establish a statewide loan assistance program for law school graduates employed in programs dedicated to serving the civil legal needs of low income Arizonans. The program is designed to supplement the low salaries paid to legal aid attorneys by allowing qualified applicants to obtain forgivable loans from the Foundation to assist them in paying their law school student loans while employed by such organizations. The goal of the program is to help attorneys enter and remain in public service.
Arizona legal aid attorneys employed by one of the Foundation's approved non-profit organizations are eligible for this loan repayment program in honor of Joyce Holsey, who silently dedicated her life to giving thousands of others a voice and equal access to our justice system. The James E. Rogers College of Law and the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law funding will be designated toward the schools' alumni working with these nonprofits. The Foundation contributions are not restricted to Arizona law school graduates. At this time, attorneys employed by government agencies are not eligible for participation in the Joyce Holsey Loan Repayment Assistance Program.
Due to limited resources, the Joyce Holsey Loan Repayment Assistance Program is closed to new applicants.
