Criminal Justice and Police Research Fellowships 2010/11-US Citizens-The Fullbright Commission-UK

The Fullbright Commission offers The Criminal Justice and Police Research Fellowships to US Citizens for the 2010/11 session in UK

Each year, approximately two awards are offered to active US police officers and civilian staff to conduct research, develop professional expertise and gain experience in the UK for periods of three and five months. In exchange for serving as host, fellows can be a resource for UK institutions by offering to speak to students and faculty about policy and practice in the US. Candidates will be selected by the Fulbright Commission and the Council for the International Exchange of Scholars (CIES) to receive a grant to be used towards related travel and maintenance costs.
Award Details:
The award is for $3,000 per month (not to exceed a total of $15,000) paid in installments directly to the grantee, the first of which is typically given just prior to arrival in the UK. Limited sickness and accident benefit coverage as well as participation in a number of Fulbright Scholar events including the Fulbright Forum in January are also included. Applicants must have full or partial financial support from their home departments.
Minimum eligibility for this award category:
  1. US citizen (resident anywhere but the UK)
  2. Currently employed by a police force (holding a position of responsibility at the level of sworn sergeant or above)
  3. Written endorsement by supervisory staff within the department
  4. Confirmation of full or partial financial support from the home department
  5. Rigor in scholarly enquiry and academic or professional excellence
  6. Evidence that participation in the program will produce benefits of significance to the larger law enforcement community
  7. Strong reasons for wishing to pursue the proposed project in the UK
  8. Interest in the peoples and cultures of the UK
  9. Clear set of objectives for the Fulbright period
  10. Commitment to the host community through volunteer and extracurricular activity.

Application Procedure:
  1. Applicants must draw up a detailed project outline and provide evidence that a UK institution will agree to act as host and supervisor. Applicants are responsible for finding their own affiliation with an UK institution. This does not need to be established at the time of application, but candidates who can demonstrate that they are actively pursuing an affiliation will be viewed more favorably. Whether lecturing, conducting seminars or researching, the specifics of this arrangement should be worked out directly with the institute of affiliation. The grant year is from September until August, but fellows must begin the grant between 1 September and 30 April.
