NCIS’s Pauley Perrette Creates a Forensic Science Scholarship

On the hit show NCIS Pauley Perrette plays a quirky, crime-solving forensic scientist named “Abby Sciuto.” In every episode “Abby” uses cutting-edge technology to help solve U.S. Navy criminal investigations—a career path many of our students aspire to reach.

Perrette established the Pauley Perrette Forensic Science Scholarship to help support John Jay undergraduate students that traditionally have been underrepresented in the Forensic Sciences. “I wanted to set up the scholarship in honor of the impact my NCIS character ‘Abby’ has had around the world over the last 15 years,” says Perrette. The groundbreaking character made Perrette one of the most popular actresses on primetime television, and motivated thousands of young women to pursue careers in math and science.

“I hope this scholarship provides an opportunity for a deserving young person to accomplish their dream of acquiring an education in Forensic Science,” says Perrette. And with her help, more real-life versions of “Abby” will have the opportunity to make a difference in our criminal justice system.
