Native Students Travel Scholarships

The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) is accepting applications from American Indian (AI) and Alaska Native (AN) students in the science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM) fields to attend the Annual Conference of the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) being held in Philadelphia, PA from October 21-24, 2017. NIJ is seeking to sponsor five (5) undergraduate or graduate students. These students will have the opportunity to interact with criminal justice scientists and practitioners and attend panel discussions on the most urgent issues facing communities and innovative, evidence-based solutions.

As NIJ is committed to uniting STEM research and criminal justice, and advancing diverse perspectives about persistent crime problems across a broad range of demographics and disciplines, we look forward to implementing this new program. Applications are due June 30, 2017. Please share this information with anyone who might be interested in applying.
