The Presley Center for Crime and Justice Studies is seeking applications for graduate student research fellowships for spring 2014. The deadline to submit proposals is Jan. 6, 2014. Notice of awards will be made by Jan. 31.
Proposals must fit within the mission of the Presley Center and must be relevant and informative to criminal justice policy and practice in the state of California, said Steven Clark, center director. The center was established at UCR by the California Legislature to conduct research on crime and violence, including: the causes and prevention of crime and violence; best practices for law enforcement and for youth and adult corrections; and the reduction of violence and recidivism in California’s prisons, jails, and youth correctional facilities.
Fellowship awards are for one quarter and include a stipend of $5,497 and cover resident fees, and fees and tuition. (Fellowships do not cover nonresident supplemental tuition). Fellowships are open to UCR Ph.D. students in any discipline who have completed at least one year of post-graduate education (including graduate programs other than UCR) and are in good standing in the Ph.D. program.
