These students will have the opportunity to interact with criminal justice scientists and practitioners and attend panel discussions on the most urgent issues facing communities and innovative, evidence-based solutions.

As NIJ is committed to uniting STEM research and criminal justice, and advancing diverse perspectives about persistent crime problems across a broad range of demographics and disciplines, we look forward to implementing this new program.
