LEADS Scholarship Program

The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) 2016 Law Enforcement Advancing Data and Science (LEADS) scholarship program is open for applications. The program helps law enforcement officers integrate research into their day-to-day work and provides NIJ with direct insight from practitioners who value research and the role it plays in practice. In 2016, NIJ will grant 10 new merit-based scholarships to mid-rank law enforcement officers. Through this program, NIJ and the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) hope to identify and develop the next generation of law enforcement leadership, and encourage the use of evidence-based practice to advance criminal justice throughout the nation. LEADS scholars will have the opportunity to attend various special events held in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area; participate in numerous networking and collaborative activities with NIJ leadership and leading researchers within the field of criminal justice; and attend the IACP annual conference held in San Diego in October 2016.

The application deadline is July 1, 2016. For information, go to
