Research Opportunities

Lynch School students make an indelible impact on the lives of children and communities across the country. Through research that they conduct alongside prominent faculty, our students develop innovative ways to address social challenges and champion human strengths.

The funding that makes this meaningful work possible comes from Research Incentive Grants, internships, faculty grants, and other opportunities available through our four departments and the Boston College Office for Sponsored Programs.
