Submit Applications for Women in Correctional Leadership Program - US

The National Institute of Corrections (NIC) is seeking applications for funding under the Fiscal Year (FY) 2021 to help support women in correctional leadership by providing web-based training modules designed for women in mid, senior, and executive levels.


The successful applicant will be required to update the current lesson plan for the two topic areas: Communicating as a Leader and Leading & Managing Organizational Change, and convert them each to 60-minute interactive virtual instructor led training (VILT) lessons. Each topical area should be developed for the two target audiences, generating a total of four training pilots that will be delivered within the course of this award.


The successful applicant(s) must:

  • Briefly articulate an understanding of how women lead and think, as it relates to the two competency areas mentioned in this proposal.
  • Address the challenges in these two component areas that women encounter while working in corrections.
  • Demonstrate the skills or contract with a technologically savvy SME as articulated in the Deliverables.
  • Demonstrate the skills or contract with an individual capable of curriculum update and VILT design.
  • Contract and train a minimum of two NIC approved SMEs to present the lessons, and at least one of the SMEs must be a woman who has served in the correctional field at the level of Warden or above.

NIC expects to make one award for as much as $90,000 for a 12-month project period.

Eligibility Criteria

  • NIC invites applications from nonprofit organizations (including faith-based, community, and tribal organizations), for-profit organizations (including tribal for-profit organizations), and institutions of higher education (including tribal institutions of higher education). Recipients, including for-profit organizations, must agree to waive any profit or fee for services.
