 Carol De Forest Student Research Grant


The Northeastern Association of Forensic Scientists is looking for candidates for the Carol De Forest Student Research Grant.

The Northeastern Association of Forensic Scientists lost a dear friend on October 3rd, 2011 when Carol De Forest, wife of Dr. Peter De Forest, lost her battle with cancer. The sight of Peter and Carol De Forest at a NEAFS meeting was as common as trace evidence on bullets, and of course always welcome. Carol invariably greeted everyone with a huge smile followed by a warm embrace. The sincerity with which she made these greetings was obvious. She always had a kind word for everyone and her compliments were genuine. For many of us, Carol’s role and influence went well beyond the Annual Meeting, as she became affectionately known as “The First Lady of Forensic Science”. To honor her spirit and enthusiasm, a student research grant fund has been established. The Carol De Forest Student Research Grant, to be awarded each year, has been designed to provide full time undergraduate or graduate forensic science students with ­financial assistance to conduct research.

Grant Eligibility Requirements:
- The applicant must be a full-time student completing his or her undergraduate or graduate degree at a regionally accredited institution located in the Northeastern U.S. (New England, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania).
- The applicant must be majoring in a natural, allied or forensic science.
- The student must have a research advisor who is a faculty member at the student’s academic institution.

Applicants must complete the application and submit with the required attachments. All documents must be submitted electronically. All submissions must be received and completed by April 30th. The deadline is firm with no extension. Please submit application and all accompanying documents electronically to This email address is being protected from spambots.
