Department of Justice fellowship in Alaska for Tribal victim assistance

May 17, 2011 is the deadline for applying for an Office for Victims of Crime/Department of Justice(OVC/DOJ) fellowship to work providing Tribal victim assistance to Alaska Natives in rural Alaska through the OVC/DOJ Alaska Native Action Team (ANAT).

The focus of the fellowship will be on the public safety, justice, and victim service needs and challenges these  communities face. Serving crime victims in Alaska presents daunting challenges as many rural, remote Alaska Native communities are impoverished, isolated, and lack victim assistance services.

Applicants are encouraged to register with several weeks before the deadline for the application submission.
