Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2016, $124,471)

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 Mass Violence and Terrorism Fellowship is to help OVC assist other government agencies, victim assistance providers, and allied practitioners in responding to mass violence and terrorism incidents by assessing current responses and resources and recommending more effective, integrated, timely, and agile support to victims. The fellow will work under the direction of OVC staff and management to plan and carry out this goal and facilitate collaboration among stakeholders and practitioners in the field. Under OVC direction, the fellow will also enhance the utility of OVC resources for governmental agencies and the victim assistance field; support and promote the dissemination of OVC resources and tools to improve the victim services field’s ability to address crime victims’ needs; and work with OVC as well as OVC training and technical assistance staff to identify practical ways to enhance OVC efforts through evidence-based or evidence-informed practices, innovative approaches, and address gaps and challenges in serving victims of mass violence events.
