Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2016, $146,945)

OVC awards fellowships to individuals to work with OVC on specific topics or purpose areas to enhance the efforts of OVC to facilitate the understanding, development, or enhancement of innovative programs, models, practices, and protocols that serve crime victims. Fellowships also foster the professional development of practitioners in the victim assistance field by providing them an opportunity to work closely with federal staff, contractors, grantees, and a myriad of public and private organizations in Washington, DC, and throughout the Nation.

The goal of the Child Sexual Exploitation Fellowship is to help OVC improve responses and services to victims of child sexual exploitation in the United States. The fellow will work under the direction of OVC staff and management to develop a plan and carry out this goal and will work closely with other government agencies (including DOJ’s Committee on the National Strategy for Child Exploitation Prevention and Interdiction), victim assistance providers, allied professionals, and other key stakeholders to facilitate communication and collaboration. The Fellow will help OVC identify practical ways to use available programmatic, training, and technical assistance resources to best support victims of CSE. The fellow will help identify ways to improve existing efforts when possible (e.g., existing programs, trainings, models, practices, protocols) and identify gaps and ways to fill them.
