Education and Research
The Lincoln Institute of Land Policy strives to create a dialogue about issues surrounding the use, taxation, and regulation of land. To promote this unbiased discussion, the Institute offers courses, conferences, and seminars on a variety of land and tax topics that reflect emerging issues and current research in land policy. These events offer participants the opportunity to exchange ideas with scholars and practitioners who have used or developed the latest land policy tools and techniques.
The Lincoln Institute also supports several ongoing research projects conceived and conducted by our staff and fellows, which provide a foundation for the Institute's educational programs, policy studies, demonstration projects, and interchanges with experts in related areas. The Institute awards research contracts to independent practitioners and scholars, as well as dissertation fellowships to Ph.D. candidates to expand our body of knowledge and support our educational resources. Research results, case studies, policy evaluations, and analyses are published in a variety of formats, from working papers to academic monographs.
