The visiting fellows program facilitates collaboration between academic scholars and government researchers in survey methodology, statistics, economics, and social sciences. Fellows conduct research at BJS or at their home site, use BJS data and facilities, and interact with BJS staff. Projects provide researchers and statisticians with a unique and challenging experience outside of their normal work environment, and BJS gains input and solutions from experts with specialized training and experience. Visit the BJS funding page for deadlines and eligibility requirements of the 2015 Visiting Fellows: Criminal Justice Statistics Programs.
