LEADS Scholar Program – Now Taking Applications (due May 31, 2019)

The National Institute of Justice’s LEADS Scholar Program is taking applications for its next cohort of scholars. Applications are due May 31, 2019.

The program, founded in 2014 in partnership with the IACP, provides grant funding to a select group of mid-career, research-minded, sworn law enforcement officers to learn and apply the foundational elements of research in order to further the law enforcement profession through science.

The three-year grant covers associated travel and per diem costs for select required educational sessions hosted by the NIJ, as well as the IACP conference.
