As a former commissioned officer with the U.S. Navy and medical officer recruiter I wanted to bring these opportunities to your attention. They are particularly well suited for people who aspire to enter the medical, legal, and chaplain professions, and extremely advantageous for the children of those serving in law and justice who are looking for funding opportunities that can make things happen beyond their expectations and financial means. As a member of the public safety and legal professions you make sacrifices each and everyday, with little or no regard for your personal safety and financial well being. While others are looking out for themselves, you have devoted your life to protecting and serving your community. JusticeAcademy.org believes firmly that you should be rewarded for this service and we call your attention to the programs listed below. If you have a child that is searching for a way to become a physician, dentist, health care administrator, nurse, lawyer, or chaplain you might just find these programs helpful as a way to make it happen for them.

Legal Education Scholarship Program
If you are interested in practicing law in one of the world’s most exclusive law firms, becoming a lawyer and Officer in the highly esteemed Navy Judge Advocate General’s (JAG) Corps is an opportunity like no other. And the rewards go beyond the distinguished experience of practicing law with global impact. By your fifth year of service, you can potentially receive up to $60,000 over and above the competitive salary and benefits you’ll already earn. This is money that many JAG Officers use to pay off student loans. In addition, the Navy may even pay for you to get your master of laws degree (LL.M.) in any of four specialties: military law, international law, environmental law and trial advocacy.

Chaplain Education Program
If you are interested in pursuing your religious calling in the Navy, the Navy Chaplain Candidate Program (CCPO) offers a whole new dimension of faith-based service. Through this program, you can be commissioned as a Navy Officer while you finish your theological studies at an accredited seminary or graduate school. Completing this program qualifies you for significant pay advantages once you enter Active Duty. You’ll also receive on-the-job training under the direct supervision of a Navy Chaplain.
