Graduate Research Fellowship Program

NIJ FY22 Graduate Research Fellowship Solicitation Cancelled

Regrettably, NIJ is unable to fund new awards under the Graduate Research Fellowship Program in FY 2022. As a reminder, all solicitations, and awards made under each solicitation, are subject to the availability of appropriated funds and to any modifications or additional requirements that may be imposed by the agency or by law.

The NIJ Graduate Research Fellowship (GRF) program supports doctoral students engaged in research that advances NIJ’s mission.

The goal of the GRF program is to increase the pool of scholars engaged in research that addresses the challenges of crime and justice in the United States, particularly at the state and local levels.

Previously, the GRF program had two separate tracks: Social and Behavioral Sciences (SBS) and Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Beginning in 2020, NIJ welcomed eligible applicants in all fields to a single GRF funding opportunity, regardless of SBS/STEM distinction.
