Grant to a USA accredited university of higher education or a law school for a program that will teach and train future justice leaders. Funding is intended to advance criminal justice policies in the country by training the next generation of judicial leaders. The use of data and evidence in policy making and program development in criminal justice, juvenile justice, and crime victim services is strongly emphasized.

The National Center on Restorative Justice (Center) has two purposes:

  1. Educate and train next generation of juvenile and criminal justice leaders. The Center shall engage and challenge undergraduate, graduate, and law students, in conjunction with criminal justice professionals, community members, educators, and social service providers, at the state, regional, and national levels, in order to broaden their understanding of criminal justice systems and restorative approaches through a degree program, a summer-term institute, or brief courses, while encouraging access to educational opportunities for incarcerated individuals.
  2. Support research focusing on how best to provide direct services to address social inequities, such as simultaneous access to substance abuse treatment and higher education.

The objective of this program is to improve criminal justice policy and practice in the United States through:

  1. The development of educational curriculum designed to broaden the understanding of justice systems and restorative approaches through a degree program, a summer-term institute, or brief courses, while encouraging access to educational opportunities for incarcerated individuals, and
  2. Support for research focusing on how best to provide direct services to address social inequities.
