.About the Grant
The grant's purpose is to further the goals of Psi Chi by providing funds for undergraduate or graduate Psi Chi members to conduct research at the FBI NCAVC. The NCAVC conducts empirical research on factors involved in violent crime (e.g., maternal filicide, sexual exploitation of children, domestic violence homicide, child abduction/ homicide, and serial murder). Interns participate as team members in all aspects of the research. Psi Chi has formed a partnership with the NCAVC to provide grants for NCAVC interns who are Psi Chi members. Up to two $7,000 grants will be awarded annually to support living expenses for Psi Chi members who are selected for one of the 14-week unpaid NCAVC internship positions. One grant will be available for a qualified fall semester intern and one grant will be available for a qualified spring semester intern.
Applicants for the FBI NCAVC internships must follow the NCAVC application procedures described at www.fbijobs.gov/232.asp
. Staff members at the NCAVC will select interns each semester based on the regular FBI NCAVC selection process. There are no intern slots reserved for Psi Chi members. For full details on the grant and all criteria, please view the information found at www.psichi.org/pdf/fbigrant.pdf.
