UNCC Justice Initiatives Award - Description
Each year, Justice Initiatives provides a $500 award to one full-time undergraduate student and one graduate student majoring in criminal justice at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte who plan to pursue a career in the court/legal system. The award is made available through a competitive process. Applicants submit a transcript, a resume, two letters of recommendation (one of which must be a from a criminal justice faculty member), a personal statement about future career goals, and an essay that discusses the challenges facing the judicial branch in general and local courts in particular. The essay must then address the role an intermediate justice system organization like JI can play in helping to advance the needs of the court system to better serve the community.

         educate the community about the court system and advocate, support and advance its needs and interests.
