NIJ seeks applicants for the W.E.B. Du Bois Fellowship for Research in Race, Gender, Culture, and Crime
The fellowship supports research on crime, justice, and culture in various social contexts with particular emphasis on diverse cultural and community factors.
The Fellowship Program offers talented researchers, who are early on in their academic careers, prior to the award of tenure, an opportunity to elevate independently generated research to the level of national discussion. Residency at NIJ is not a fellowship program requirement; however it is an option for interested applicants. Scholars from all academic disciplines are encouraged to apply.
