Cooperative agreements to USA and territories nonprofit organizations, for-profit organizations, government agencies, tribes, IHEs, and certain qualified individuals for fellowships that focus on critical criminal justice issues. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to several weeks to complete.
OJP is committed to advancing work that promotes civil rights and racial equity, increases access to justice, supports crime victims and individuals impacted by the justice system, strengthens community safety and protects the public from crime and evolving threats, and builds trust between law enforcement and the community. Through the BJA Visiting Fellows Program, BJA invests in future and current leaders in the field to advance priority national policy issues and offer cross-developmental opportunities for DOJ staff and criminal justice practitioners and researchers.
The purpose of each fellowship is to make important policy and programmatic contributions in a focus area of criminal justice practice. Fellows will collaborate with BJA and DOJ staff members to provide critical outreach, data, research, and subject-matter expertise to inform the development of new BJA strategies and programs to benefit the field.
