    The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), Office of Justice Programs (OJP), National Institute of Justice (NIJ) seeks investigator-initiated proposals in two funding categories under the W.E.B. Du Bois Program of Research on Race and Crime: (1) Scholars who are advanced in their careers; and (2) Fellows who are early in their careers. The program supports research on the intersections of race, offending, victimization, and/or the fair administration of justice for both juveniles and adults. It furthers the Department’s mission by advancing  knowledge regarding the confluence of crime, justice, and culture in various societal contexts.
