Learning Experiences to Advance Practice (LEAP)

LEAP Scholar Track

The LEAP Scholar Track is a one-year program designed for professionals whose goal is to collaborate on research projects but not necessarily lead research as a career investigator.

Practitioners who provide health care at the intersection of health and justice and practitioners who work on programming in criminal justice settings are ideal candidates.

The LEAP Scholar Track is designed for graduate students early in their programs who are interested in exploring research with justice-involved populations but who have no role models or faculty who are career researchers in the field.

At present, during the COVID-19 pandemic, all sessions throughout the year will be virtual; with a flexible approach for synchronous or asynchronous participation. In addition to teaching knowledge and skills, participants are provided with mentorship by program leaders as well as career advice and networking opportunities.

The LEAP Scholar Track admission requires an application to be completed and selection to participate will be based on the strength of your application.
