Young Researchers Scholar Program 2018-02-26T10:48:33+00:00


This is a training and mentorship programme for young scholars with an interest in the areas of Humanities and Social Sciences. The programme provides an opportunity for the scholars to nurture their interests and experience in research processes such as proposal development; data collection; serialization of collected data; data cleaning, coding, data entry and analysis. The programme also sharpens their skills in writing of crime research reports; policy and issue briefs.
It is aimed at developing a talent pool of crime researchers in Kenya through collaboration between National Crime research Centre and other partners that are also implementing the programme. The programme enhances the Centre’s capacity in playing its advisory role of collating all crime related data to inform policy decision making.
Overall, the programme offers the participants an opportunity to understand government policy making processes, and provides them with a chance to contribute towards improving service delivery to Kenyan citizens.
