悬案奖学金计划

Accepting applications now for fall 2024

By working real cold cases and taking classes taught by faculty with criminal justice experience, the 悬案奖学金计划 provides students with real experiences and opportunities that will benefit them far into their future career. 通过这个项目, the University incorporates the brightest and best TU students to look at actual cold cases with a fresh set of eyes and a clear lens. The students will work on the case at least 10 hours per week throughout the academic year. This cohort experience (capped at 25 new students per academic year) is open to a diverse population of students, not just criminal justice and social science majors. Students can be enrolled in programs in business, leadership, accounting, 法务会计及其他. The Fellowship also offers a seamless transition from the bachelor’s to graduate program, with a special recognition at commencement.

研修期间, students will be taking part in various immersion experiences, 根据悬案的工作. 这些经历可能包括:

  • 前往悬案地点
  • Examining files, developing leads, making recommendations for further investigation
  • 学习调查技能, 批判性思维能力, 沟通, teamwork, leadership development in a cold case environment
  • 领导机会
  • Achieving certifications, licensure and badging
  • 职业发展和准备

I am excited to be part of the development of the 悬案奖学金计划 at Tiffin University. The growing need for cold case work is well established in our society. Advancements in forensic technology in recent years have turned the tables toward the solving of cold cases. 还有午餐学生, supported by a faculty with an expansive depth and breadth of professional experience, are well-positioned to investigate cold cases, 协助执法机构, and seek justice for victims and their families.
