Description

With this solicitation, the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) seeks to invest in current and future leaders in the criminal justice field to advance priority national policy issues and offer cross-developmental opportunities for Department of Justice (DOJ) staff and criminal justice practitioners and researchers.

Awards made under this program will fund fellowships for a period of 24 months for Category 1 and for 36 months under Category 2, including a “dedicated immersion” period when the Fellow will be expected to commit a significant portion of their time to the fellowship. Fellows will also have an opportunity to work closely with BJA staff members, both virtually and onsite at BJA’s office in Washington, D.C.

The purpose of each fellowship is to make important policy and programmatic contributions in a criminal justice focus area. Fellows will collaborate with BJA and DOJ staff members to provide critical outreach, data, research, and subject matter expertise to inform the development of new BJA strategies, policies, and programs to benefit the field.
