Grants to USA, territories, and tribal agencies, nonprofits, businesses, qualified individuals, and IHEs for research related to violence in teen relationships. Applicants are encouraged to register to apply several weeks before the application submission deadline. Research will improve knowledge and understanding of violence in teen dating, intimate partner violence, and gender-based assault.
NIJ strives to provide objective and independent knowledge and validated tools to reduce violence against women and girls, and promote justice for victims. The objectives of this solicitation are to fund high-quality research projects that advance the accurate and developmentally appropriate measurement of dating violence perpetration and victimization among adolescents and young adults.
Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Experimental studies that compare different measurement approaches such as wording and ordering.
• Studies that use qualitative or cognitive interviewing techniques in attempts to place youth responses to standard behavioral measures in context.
• Studies combining existing data sets that use similar behavioral measures to examine potential methodological questions such as:
- Item-level analyses, such as the use of item response theory (IRT), to examine differential validity, sensitivity, and specificity.
- Investigate the measurement invariance of specific acts as they relate to a stable construct over the lifespan.
• Studies that explore the use of innovative techniques for survey and data collection.
• Studies that explore the appropriateness of existing behavioral measures for use with cultural subgroups.
• Studies that seek to develop and pilot test new, nonbehavioral measures such as episode based information.
NIJ is also interested in applications that build on the findings of the recently completed concept mapping study (see the full report and executive summary attached).
