GrantWatch ID#: 150303
Agency Type:

US Department of Justice (DOJ) - Office of Justice Programs (OJP) - National Institute of Justice (NIJ)

11/21/16 11:59 PM ET

Grants of up to $50,000 to USA and territories higher education institutions to support a graduate research fellowship addressing crime prevention and control, public safety, and fair administration of criminal justice. Institutions may sponsor fellowships for doctoral students in the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) disciplines. The student’s proposed research must have demonstrable implications for addressing the challenges of crime, and/or the fair and impartial administration of criminal justice in the United States.

Awards are anticipated to be made to successful applicant institutions in the form of grants to cover fellowships for the sponsored doctoral students. NIJ provides the degree-granting institution a stipend of $35,000 usable toward the student’s salary and related costs, and up to $15,000 to cover the student’s tuition and fees, research expenses, and related costs.

$1,000,000

Expected Number of Awards: 20

Each year of support (i.e., the initial award, and possibly second and third-year supplements) includes a $35,000 allowance usable toward a salary/stipend for the student and related costs, and up to $15,000 to cover the student’s tuition and fees, research expenses, and related costs.

Although the initial award is only for one year of funding, each fellowship potentially provides up to three years of support usable over a five-year period.

The applicant institution will have to reapply on behalf of the student for each additional year.

Eligible applicants are limited to degree-granting academic institutions in the United States and its territories.

To be eligible, the institution must be fully accredited by one of the regional institutional accreditation agencies recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education.

Under this solicitation, the applicant institution must apply as the sponsoring institution for the doctoral candidate conducting criminal justice-related research in a discipline relevant to NIJ’s mission.

NIJ may elect to make awards for applications submitted under this solicitation in future fiscal years, dependent on, among other considerations, the merit of the applications and on the availability of appropriations.

The graduate student must:

-Be enrolled full-time in a doctoral degree program in a STEM discipline at the eligible academic institution; and

-Propose a dissertation research topic that is relevant to addressing the challenges of crime, and/or the fair and impartial administration of criminal justice in the United States (see What an Application Should Include).

The doctoral student need not have a dissertation committee at the time the application is submitted, nor is it necessary for the student’s dissertation topic to have been accepted by the committee. However, if the application is selected for award, grant funds will be withheld until the applicant academic institution submits proof that the student’s dissertation topic has been accepted by the committee and that it is substantively the same as that proposed in the application.

If the doctoral student has an approved topic at the time of application, then it should be noted in a statement of support from the doctoral student’s dissertation committee chair (see Dissertation Committee Chair Requirements). If the doctoral student’s topic has not been approved at the time of application, then the expected dates by which the doctoral student will meet this requirement should be indicated in the project timeline (see “Proposed project timeline and expected milestones” under Appendices). In addition, the doctoral student’s faculty advisor, department chair, departmental director of graduate studies, or an individual with similar responsibilities must submit a statement of support at the time of application. That statement of support should generally follow the outline provided below for the statement of support from the dissertation committee chair, including all relevant elements.

Applicants must register with Grants.gov prior to submitting an application. All applications are due to be submitted and in receipt of a successful validation message in Grants.gov by 11:59 PM Eastern Time on November 21, 2016.
