Calling all undergraduate and graduate students! Show your skills with NCVS data.

On September 27, 2023, the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) in the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs, is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS). As part of our recognition of the achievements of the NCVS over the last 50 years, we want to highlight how students use NCVS data. We are holding a special lightning session where selected students will present a poster or visual describing their work using the NCVS during our celebration event in Washington, DC. BJS will cover travel expenses (within the United States) and poster printing costs. This is your opportunity to showcase your work and network with other researchers, practitioners, and other professionals!

Must be a current student in an undergraduate or graduate degree program at a U.S. college or university. Must be able to attend the event in person in Washington, DC. There is no virtual participation option for the student spotlights. 

Application Process
Send a short description (250 words max) of the planned poster to [email protected] by August 4, 2023. Put “NCVS@50 Submission” in the subject. The first 20 applications received by August 4 will be considered. BJS will select up to five students to attend the anniversary event in person and present their poster at the lightning session.
