Fiscal Year 2016 Solicitations


NIJ Graduate Research Fellowship Program in the Social and Behavioral Sciences

Q-1:What period of time should the applicant’s budget narrative and budget detail worksheet address?
A: The budget narrative and budget detail worksheet should reflect the entire proposed project timeline of up to three years, in discrete 12-month increments. But, the SF-424 should only reflect the first 12-months funding requirement.
Q-2: May an accredited academic institution apply on behalf of student who is enrolled in a qualifying doctoral program part-time at the time of submission but who will be enrolled full-time beginning the academic term in which fellowship activity was proposed to begin?
A: Yes. Under such circumstances, in additional to all other requirements, the institution must submit an official letter stating that it expects that the student will be enrolled full-time in the doctoral degree program beginning the academic term in which fellowship activity is proposed to begin. Be aware that under these circumstances, if an award is made, NIJ will place a condition on the award withholding funds until full-time enrollment is demonstrated for the academic term in which fellowship activity is proposed to begin.
