NIJ seeks proposals for research to support NIJ’s Violence Against Indian Women (VAIW) program of research and to expand the body of criminal justice policy-relevant research. Accurate, comprehensive, and current information on the incidence, prevalence, and the nature of crime and victimization in Indian Country and Alaska Native villages is critically needed to improve our understanding of the programmatic, service, and policy needs of AI and AN women and communities, and to educate and inform policymakers and the public about the threat to the health and well-being of AI and AN women. NIJ will award up to two tribal postdoctoral research associate fellowships to individuals who show the greatest potential for future achievement as scholars and researchers; and who can demonstrate experience relevant to the unique demands of working with tribal communities, including experience working in Indian Country and Alaska Native villages.
