National Institute of Justice: Research into Immigration and Crime. With this solicitation, NIJ seeks proposals for research projects that increase understanding of the relationship between immigration, both legal and illegal, and crime. Applicants should propose research projects that have clear implications for criminal justice policy and practice in the United States. NIJ strongly encourages applicants to propose the most rigorous possible methods for isolating the effects of immigration status on criminality, offending and victimization, and how those effects may vary based on subtypes of crimes and subtypes of offenders and victims. Deadline: May 20, 2019. For more information, visit nij.gov/funding/Documents/solicitations/NIJ-2019-15588.pdf.
