 The ATAP Dr. Chris Hatcher Memorial Scholarship is awarded  each year to  a student in the upper level undergraduate (Junior or Senior) or graduate level.   Dr. Hatcher’s work in threat assessment and work place violence recognizes the importance of social science and criminal justice research and its application to a developing field.
