The (National Institute of Justice's) NIJ Research Assistantship Program (RAP) offers highly qualified doctoral students the opportunity to bring their expertise to NIJ to work across offices and program areas to obtain a practical and applied research experience. The program is newly designed and welcomes students from an array of disciplines to apply their expertise to the criminal justice field.

NIJ will provide funds to participating universities to pay salaries and costs associated with research assistants who work on NIJ research projects.

Research Assistantship appointments last for one year, following the home university’s academic calendar. There is the possibility of reappointment depending on mid-year reviews, funding availability, and agreements between NIJ and the research assistant-s university.
