Grant Funding

Research support for faculty by way of Research Development Grants up to $10,000 is available to pursue research that investigates a law, crime, justice, and/or corrections topic from a social science, health science, legal, management, or interdisciplinary perspective.

The next call for applications is TO BE DETERMINED but will be advertised when live.
