The Academic Consortium on Criminal Justice and Health will be offering scholarships to our 17th annual meeting. This year’s conference will take place April 10 – 12, 2024, at the Marriott Resort Phoenix Tempe at the Buttes, in Phoenix, Arizona.
All applications will be reviewed by two members of the ACCJH Board of Directors. Applicants who will be presenting at the conference will have an advantage in the award process. We are also particularly interested in applicants who have lived experience with the criminal legal system—a member constituency that has been historically under-represented at the conference. We will award one scholarship recipient the Warren J. Ferguson Scholarship.
Applications are due no later than Wednesday, November 1, 2023 at 11:59pm.
