Apply for Criminal Justice Researcher-Practitioner Fellowship Program

The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), Office of Justice Programs (OJP) and National Institute of Justice (NIJ) are seeking proposals for the Criminal Justice Researcher-Practitioner Fellowship Placement Program. The program will help criminal justice practitioners build their capacity to measure program effectiveness and adjust practice based on real-time learning.

The fellowship supports the placement of a researcher within a criminal justice practice-based organization. The researcher will work directly with the organization to conduct criminal justice research and/or evaluation that relates to the needs of the organization but also has implications for local, state and national practice or policy.

Eligible practitioners include public, nonprofit, or community-based agencies at federal, state and local levels directly involved in:
  • Crime and violence prevention programs
  • Crime victim services and programs
  • The juvenile justice system 
  • Law enforcement
  • Corrections, including pretrial, parole, probation, supervised release, and offender reentry
  • The criminal judicial system
  • Forensic sciences for criminal justice purposes 
All applications must include a signed written agreement between the research- and practice-based organization which: (1) outlines the roles of the researcher(s) and practitioners; (2) provides a statement of work; (3) details partnership activities, including periodic partnership meetings and communication activities; (4) addresses on-site accommodation for the researcher(s); (5) proposed a dissemination plan for project findings; and (6) indicates agreement of both the researcher(s) and placement organization to co-author a report describing the placement effort, obstacles experienced and solutions put into practice.

NIJ anticipates that up to a total of $2 million may become available for awards under this solicitation. From the total amount, NIJ anticipates that it will make up to four awards for a project period of 36 months. All applications are due by 11:59 p.m. eastern time on May 28, 2014, submitted via To see the complete grant solicitation and selection criteria (the fellowship is detailed under “area two” ), click here.
