Native Student Scholarship to IACP 2017

NIJ is seeking to sponsor five undergraduate or graduate students, who are American Indian or Alaska Natives studying science, technology, engineering, and math, to attend the International Association of Chiefs of Police Conference (IACP) conference in Philadelphia on October 21–24, 2017.

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.
