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.
