The Department of Justice Office of Justice Program’s National Institute of Justice (NIJ) announced the availability of travel scholarships to American Indian and Alaska Native students who are interested in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), or in the social and behavioral sciences (SBS), to study how those fields support criminal justice and public safety.
The Native Student Travel Scholarship Program: Connecting Science to Crime and Justice will provide up to 15 students the opportunity to attend a criminal justice-related conference 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.
Eligibility, application and other crucial program details are available online at: https://nij.gov/topics/tribal-justice/Pages/native-student-travel-scholarships.aspx.
Deadline for application is May 17, 2019.
