NIJ's Research Assistantship Program

The NIJ Research Assistantship Program (RAP) is designed to support criminal justice research and to provide highly qualified doctoral students with practical and applied research experience. NIJ provides funds to participating universities to pay salaries and other costs associated with research assistants who work on NIJ research activities.

The RAP is based on relationships between NIJ and participating universities. Participating universities nominate enrolled students for research assistantships, and NIJ selects from the nominees based on their background and expertise.
