Gateway for Doctoral Students

The Rappaport Institute for Greater Boston encourages doctoral students to conduct high quality, policy-relevant research into issues of importance for Greater Boston. To do so, it provides seed and start-up funding for new projects, helps identify other funding sources for that research, helps scholars connect with local officials and leaders who can help scholars with their projects, and works with scholars to disseminate their findings to practitioners in timely and accessible ways. The Institute also supports courses and the development of teaching materials about issues of importance to Greater Boston.
