Annotation: Citing the personal experiences of fellowship recipients, this paper briefly describes the cultivating of leaders in criminal justice provided through the John B. Pickett Fellowships in Criminal Justice Policy and Management.
Abstract: Since 1992, the John B. Pickett Fellowships in Criminal Justice Policy and Management have provided assistance to practitioners who are interested in attending a 1-year Mid-Career Master Program in Public Administration program at the Kennedy School. Since the fellowship program began, 16 master degree students have received fellowships. The fellowships encourage criminal justice professionals to continue John Pickett’s (first director of planning and management for the U.S. Department of Justice, National Institute of Justice (NIJ)) commitment to public service and criminal justice administration. To be selected for a Pickett fellowship, candidates must demonstrate the qualities of integrity, professionalism, and dedication to public service exemplified in John Pickett’s character and distinguished career. They must have the motivation and values to lead in their fields. NIJ supports one, Mid-Career master degree tuition each year, either for one student or split among two or more students. The Kennedy School manages the application and selection process.
