The Graduate Research Fellowship (GRF) program provides grants to accredited academic institutions to support outstanding doctoral students whose dissertation research is relevant to criminal or juvenile justice. Applicant academic institutions are eligible to apply only if:
- The student is currently enrolled in a Ph.D. program in the sciences or engineering.
- The student’s proposed dissertation research has demonstrable relevance to preventing and controlling crime, advancing knowledge of victimization and effective victim services, or ensuring the fair and impartial administration of criminal or juvenile justice, in the United States.
Footnote 1 on page 6 has been removed. Questions about whether a degree program qualifies under “sciences or engineering” may be directed to the OJP Response Center. In particular, we would like to clarify that Social Work is considered to be a qualifying degree program field.
