Join an NIJ-hosted webinar on November 11, 2020, at 3:00 p.m. ET in which we’ll discuss the 2021-2022 program.

The NIJ is accepting applications for the 2021-2022 academic year. Applications are due December 23, 2020.

The NIJ Research Assistantship Program (RAP) offers highly qualified doctoral students the opportunity to bring their expertise to NIJ to work across offices and program areas to obtain a practical and applied research experience. The RA program is a research-focused professional development opportunity for doctoral students. We welcome students from all academic disciplines to apply who wish to connect their research to the criminal justice field. This unique assistantship is an opportunity to learn and contribute to the breadth and depth of science research in which NIJ engages. NIJ provides funds to participating universities to pay salaries and other costs associated with research assistants who work on NIJ research activities.
