About the GRF Program

The goal of the GRF program is to increase the pool of scholars engaged in research that addresses the challenges of crime and justice in the United States, particularly at the state and local levels.

The GRF program has two tracks:

  • Social and Behavioral Sciences. The Social and Behavioral Sciences program supports research in all social and behavioral science disciplines including, but not limited to, criminology, psychology and sociology.
  • Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). The STEM program supports research in the life sciences, physical sciences, engineering, computer and information sciences, and the mathematical sciences.
