Funding for professional development

The faculty in the criminology program offers criminology majors the opportunity to receive partial reimbursement of the expenses required to attend professional conferences. To receive funding, you must:

  • Be a currently enrolled student
  • Be admitted into the criminology program
  • Have completed at least 9 hours of criminology coursework (this does not apply to graduate students)
  • Maintained a 2.5 cumulative GPA and a 2.5 GPA in major coursework
  • Submitted a completed application form to the Criminology & Criminal Justice department office in Strong 231

Your application will be reviewed by the criminology committee and the decision to provide partial reimbursement will depend partly on the amount of funds available to the committee.

Professional organizations

Conferences are hosted by a variety of criminal justice organizations throughout the year. More information about the major national criminal justice professional organizations is available on their web sites:
