Donations

Currently, we are accepting donations for the following items:

RUTH D. PETERSON FELLOWSHIP FOR RACIAL AND ETHNIC DIVERSITY
This Fellowship is designed to encourage students of color, especially those from racial and ethnic groups underrepresented in the field, to enter the field of criminology and criminal justice, and to facilitate the completion of their degrees. More information about the award can be found here: http://www.asc41.com/awards/RuthPetersonFellowship.html

DIVISION OF BIOPSYCHOSOCIAL CRIMINOLOGY STUDENT AWARD FUND
The goal of the DBC Student Award Fund is to recognize and support the work of exceptional graduate students conducting work related to biopsychosocial criminology. To support DBC's effort in promoting and encouraging good scholarship among students, an anonymous donor is offering a $1,000 donation match to the DBC's student award fund if DBC members contribute $1,000+. This is how you can easily and directly contribute to the future of DBC and the field of biopsychosocial criminology - every donation helps, no matter how small! Tax-deductible donations can be made to the fund, which will be used to support the division’s new graduate student award. All donors will be acknowledged on the DBC website: https://www.bpscrim.org/awards. Donors may also pledge anonymous gifts.

DIVISION ON CRITICAL CRIMINOLOGY & SOCIAL JUSTICE ADVANCEMENT AND IMPROVEMENT FUND
Donations can be made to the DCC Advancement and Improvement Fund. The fund has been established to support projects that advance the mission of the DCC. The endowment will also be used to support activities dedicated to ensuring the Division of Critical Criminology & Social Justice can play a continuing role in promoting critical criminology. Under normal circumstances these tax-deductible donations will not be used for general operating expenses, but for travel and scholarship grants, as well as projects that are decided annually by the DCC Executive Committee.

DIVISION OF EXPERIMENTAL CRIMINOLOGY AWARDS AND MENTORING PROGRAM FUND
The goal of the DEC Awards and Mentoring Program Fund is to continue to provide individual award plaques to award recipients and cash awards for the student paper award, as well as support career development. Specifically, beginning in 2018, the DEC is launching a mentoring program in which young scholars and students can be matched with more advanced scholars to promote career development despite the location of the mentors’ home institution or organization in the hopes that this will encourage both international mentorship and mentorship for those who are at different institutions and/or organizations. Donations will support an annual mentoring event at ASC each year, and the first ten donors who contribute $150 or more will be invited to attend a special mentoring event/reception. However, every donation will be recognized (no matter how small) by an acknowledgment in our monthly newsletter, on our website (https://expcrim.org), and prior to the ASC annually (anonymous donations also accepted). Tax-deductible donations can be made to the fund, which will be used to support DEC’s mentoring/career development, and awards ceremony at ASC.

DIVISION OF INTERNATIONAL CRIMINOLOGY FUND
The DIC Fund is a source of funding to support programs and projects aimed at advancing the mission of the Division of International Criminology. Tax-deductible donations can be made to the fund, which will be used to support the division’s new graduate student award (Graduate Fellowship for Global Research), the Outstanding Book Award and the Freda Adler Distinguished Scholar Award. All donations will be acknowledged on the DIC website at http://www.internationalcriminology.com/donations. Donors may also pledge anonymous gifts.

DIVISION ON PEOPLE OF COLOR AND CRIME’S HELEN TAYLOR GREENE AND VERNETTA D. YOUNG GRADUATE FELLOWSHIP FOR THE STUDY OF RACE AND CRIME
This fellowship was established in 2018 to support the work of exceptional graduate students conducting work in the field of race and crime. The fellowship is named in honor of two longstanding members of the DPCC, Helen Taylor Greene and Vernetta D. Young. In addition to their outstanding scholarship, they have provided support and mentorship to many generations of graduate students. This award recognizes and continues their efforts.

For example, faculty who wish to contribute more than $15, dedicated to the Division of Rural Criminology, should consider $30, $45, $60 etc. Likewise, student can contribute in five dollar multiples.
