Grants help us to provide paid training and tuition for our students

With current awards from agencies such as the National Institutes of Health, the Institute for Education Sciences, the United States Department of Education, and the National Science Foundation, Lehigh’s College of Education faculty continue to define themselves as front runners in the educational research arena. 

Experimental studies in areas such as response-to-intervention (RTI), autism, the incorporation of geospatial tools in the classroom, and attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder represent just a sampling of the active projects currently being investigated with the support of federal and foundation funding.  

Our grants foster collaboration among colleagues, other Lehigh departments, and with educational institutions both nationally and internationally.  Current partnerships include Ohio University, Penn State University, the University of Houston, Temple University, and Vanderbilt University, the University of Missouri, among many others.  

Our research not only impacts the educational field but also enables the College of Education to engage more graduate students throughout the research process by providing additional financial support and learning opportunities for them.  

Almost all of our active research projects provide support for at least one graduate student, with some projects supporting up to five students.
