Future Institute Research Center


The Future Institute Research Center, a branch of Future Institute and Concept Schools, plans and conducts rigorous research, disseminates the findings leading to data driven decision making and supports graduate student research. Research is conducted by a national team of highly qualified research fellows focused on transition, college and career success.

The Center fosters an environment in which all research fellows do their best work strengthened and enriched by different perspectives, backgrounds, and experiences through a commitment to:

–  Attract and retain highly qualified researchers and scholars,

–  Be open and receptive to a variety of different perspectives in conducting and disseminating the findings of our research,

–  Increase our potential, effectiveness, and creativity as a research center by offering the broadest possible range of approaches to addressing issues and solving problems, and

–  Hold ourselves to high standards of ethics and integrity.

The Future Institute Research Center supports graduate student research through awarding annual scholarships. All applicants should be doctoral students whose research topic aligns with the Center’s focus: post-secondary transition, college and career success.

If awarded the Future Institute Research Center Scholarship, you would receive the status of Associate Research Fellow and provide the Center with bi-annual updates of your progress.

This year, 2018-2019, the Center will award five $1,000 scholarships to be used for research related materials and if applicable, a conference presentation upon completion of the study.
