TIHAI Student Scholars Program

2018 Student Scholars Program

TIHAI is currently accepting proposals for the 2018 Human-Animal Interaction (HAI) Student Scholars Program.  The HAI Student Scholars program will accept requests for funding events, projects, and programs related to HAI in the realms of research, education, and service.

Projects may be geared towards activities that benefit people, animals, or both, although activities that benefit both will be given priority, and proposals that involve harm or stress to animals will not be considered. Topics may be related to any area of HAI, such as science and engineering education, pet ownership, animal-assisted therapy, and others. Funding will be considered for individual students or a group of students, though all applications require a Tufts University faculty or staff mentor. Applications for graduate or undergraduate students from all Tufts campuses are welcomed, and cross-campus collaborations are highly encouraged.
