NIJ Scholarship Opportunity for American Indian & Alaska Native Students!

NIJ is now accepting applications for our American Indian and Alaska Native Student Travel Scholarship Program: Connecting Science to Crime and Justice for 2018. NIJ supports research that addresses important issues facing tribal nations and aims to encourage the next generation of tribal justice researchers and scholars.

This year, NIJ will support up to fifteen (15) American Indian and Alaska Native undergraduate or graduate students in attending major criminal justice-related conferences to explore the role of science in solving complex problems to increase public safety.  Attendance at these conferences will allow students to explore the ways their interest in science applies to crime and justice, and to meet researchers and practitioners currently engaged in similar work. Additionally, students will learn about innovative, evidence-based and technological solutions to justice issues.

Application packages are due by 11:59 ET PM on Friday, May 18, 2018.
