Professional Development Scholarships

OVC IS NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS

Effective June 8, 2013, the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) Crime Victim/Survivor Scholarship Program has been folded into the Professional Development Scholarship Program. The Office for Victims of Crime Training and Technical Assistance Center (OVC TTAC) provides comprehensive quality training and technical assistance resources to victim service providers and other professionals. Due to this change, the OVC TTAC is looking into increasing the number of Professional Development Scholarships awarded under this program, however, this change will not take place until or after the fall of 2013.

The Office for Victims of Crime is pleased to announce the availability of Professional Development Scholarships to those who work with victims of crime. The program provides up to $1,000 for individuals and up to $5,000 for multidisciplinary teams of victim service professionals seeking continuing education opportunities. The scholarship program is administered by OVC TTAC.

For more information on the eligibility requirements for Professional Development Scholarships, please see the OVC website. The website also provides answers to Frequently Asked Questions as well as a process to apply for a scholarship.

Conference Scholarships for Law Enforcement

DEADLINE IS PAST DUE

We are pleased to announce that 10 scholarships are available for law enforcement personnel to attend our 2014 International Conference on Sexual Assault, Domestic Violence, and Trafficking in Seattle, Washington. These scholarships are funded by the Office on Violence Against Women, U.S. Department of Justice, and they will be awarded on a competitive basis.

What costs will be covered? These scholarships will be used to cover the full cost of your conference registration and up to $500 in travel expenses. If you have an existing OVW grant, you can also check with your grant manager to see if any additional travel expenses can be covered by your grant.

Who is eligible to apply? To be eligible for a scholarship, applicants must be from the U.S. States or Territories and work in the field of law enforcement. Because of the specific grant objectives for this OVW-funded project, applicants must have some responsibility for responding to or investigating sexual assault cases.

How do I apply? To apply, please complete the application form. Your completed application must be submitted by December 31, 2013, either by emailing it to admin@evawintl.org or faxing it to (509) 684-9801.

When you submit an application, you will receive an email message confirming receipt. If you have not received this confirmation email within five (5) business days, please contact us.

How will the applications be reviewed? Applications will be reviewed by a selection committee of multidisciplinary professionals in the field who will rate them using standardized criteria. These criteria are designed to assess the following areas:

  • Level of current and future responsibility for investigating sexual assault
  • Availability of training opportunities for sexual assault investigation
  • Availability of funds within the organization to support conference participation
  • Likelihood of attending the conference if the scholarship is awarded
  • Evidence for the potential impact in improving knowledge and skills in this area
  • Demonstrated support from the applicant's organization for conference participation

Applications will be scored by selection committee members on the criteria listed above, so applicants are encouraged to address each of the points in their submission materials.

When will I be notified? Applicants will be notified of our final decisions by February 1, 2014. If you do not receive notification on that date, please contact us.

Thanks to OVW! We would like to thank OVW for their support and for providing this opportunity for law enforcement professionals to participate in this unique training conference – particularly for those who might not otherwise be able to attend without scholarship funding.
