The purpose of the Forensic Psychology Research Institute (FPRI) at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, City University of New York (CUNY), is to create and foster research opportunities in forensic psychology for qualified faculty and students so that they may acquire and enhance their research skills and capabilities. The FPRI funds research undertaken by psychology faculty and graduate students.
WHO CAN APPLY?
1) Faculty Researchers: Any member of the John Jay College Psychology faculty who is conducting research addressing an issue appropriate to the field of Forensic Psychology is eligible to apply. The research project must engage students as research assistants.
2) Student Researchers: Any John Jay College Forensic Psychology master’s student (with at least a 3.0 G.P.A.) completing a master’s thesis or any student in CUNY’s doctoral program in Forensic Psychology completing a first doctoral exam or dissertation project may apply for FPRI support.
3) Faculty/Student Collaborators: Faculty and students working together as research collaborators are eligible to apply. The research must address an issue appropriate to the field of Forensic Psychology and the nature of the collaboration must be described in detail in the proposal, with the roles of the student and faculty member clearly defined. Collaborative grants cannot be used to fund dissertation research or dissertation-related pilot studies.
WHAT WILL BE FUNDED?
The main purpose of the FPRI is to provide seed money for reasonable research expenses related to faculty research projects, master’s theses, first doctoral exams, and doctoral dissertations. It is hoped that FPRI funds for faculty research will be used for pilot or foundational work to assist in the preparation of applications for external funding.
Reasonable research expenses include participant fees, costs of materials and measures, other specialized research-related equipment, and/or faculty release time.
