Dr. Kupchik was a recipient of an award under NIJ’s Graduate Research Fellowship Program.

Aaron Kupchik (2001 Fellow) is a professor in the Department of Sociology and Criminology at the University of Delaware, where he studies the policing and punishment of children in schools, courts and correctional facilities. He is the author of Homeroom Security: School Discipline in an Age of Fear (2010, NYU Press) and Judging Juveniles: Prosecuting Adolescents in Adult and Juvenile Courts (2006, NYU Press); the latter book was a winner of the American Society of Criminology Hindelang Book Award.  The GRF award allowed me to conduct the in-depth, multimethod research that my dissertation required and that gave my career a boost from the beginning, he says.
