Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology Giving Tuesday

Support Student Research Scholarships


Each semester, over 30 undergraduate students majoring in Criminal Justice and Criminology engage in research with faculty mentors. You can help us recognize some of these students for their contributions to research. By promoting and encouraging research engagement, these students are not only generating valuable insights to better understand the criminal justice system but are also gaining valuable experience to help with their marketability.
