Under the RAP, NIJ provides financial support to participating universities for costs associated with research assistants enrolled in doctoral research degree programs who then work at NIJ and participate in NIJ’s research activities. The RA will be assigned responsibilities across NIJ’s two science offices, depending on the needs and interests of the science offices, and the interests of the RA.
