Three Boston educators to become Conant Fellows

Three Boston Public Schools educators have been named James Bryant Conant Fellows at the Harvard Graduate School of Education for the upcoming school year:
  • Amy Bisiewicz, Office of Instructional and Information Technology (OIIT);
  • Ryan Rud, The English High School; and
  • Jonathan Sproul, Monument High School.
The fellowship began in 1986, in celebration of Harvard University's 350th anniversary, and is named in honored of its former President. Every year, a select group of educators from the Boston and Cambridge Public Schools are awarded fellowships to earn full tuition scholarships during their one-year leave of absence from the district while pursuing advanced degrees.
