Collaborative Fellows Research Project

The Collaborative Fellows Program provides time, incentives, and resources to K-12 school and University personnel to forge collaborative teams and build trusting, working relationships to reinforce each others' common professional interests. Teams of collaborative scholars, learning from each other as they work through mutual problems, improve teaching in both school and University courses, and ground research projects in school-based experience.

The Boston Collaborative Fellows Program was established in 1999 thanks to a generous and anonymous $5 million endowment gift. The Collaborative Fellows Program manifests the spirit of the Lynch School mission, "Through research we seek to advance knowledge in our respective fields, to inform policy and improve practice."
