The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) Research Assistantship Program (RAP) is designed to support criminal justice research and to provide highly qualified doctoral students with practical and applied research experience. NIJ provides funds to participating universities to pay salaries and other costs associated with research assistants who work on NIJ research activities.
This specific assistantship would be working with staff at NIJ (and other federal and tribal partners) working on research and evaluation examining violence against Indian women living in tribal communities. NIJ only accepts RAP applicant packets in which the student’s graduate program director (GPD) has agreed to nominate the student.

The deadline for candidate submissions January 23, 2015. For more information, please click here.
