2017 Tufts Institute for Human-Animal Interaction Student Scholars Program

The Tufts Institute for Human-Animal Interaction (TIHAI) is currently accepting proposals for the 2017 TIHAI Student Scholars Program. The mission of TIHAI is to promote the health, strengths, and well- being of humans and animals through transdisciplinary partnerships that foster innovative research, education, and service programs in human-animal interaction. The TIHAI 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 are welcomed.

Before completing the application for the TIHAI Student Scholars, please read carefully through the items below to assist in preparing a competitive application.

Deadline: Please submit all application materials via email to hai@tufts.edu by 5:00 pm on April 10, 2017. Applicants will be notified about funding decisions by May 1, 2017.
