The Tufts Initiative for Human-Animal Interaction (TIHAI) at the Center for Animals and Public Policy is currently accepting proposals for the 2023 Human-Animal Interaction (HAI) Student Scholars Program.

During the 2023-2024 academic year, the Scholars Program will focus on covering the costs to support student-led therapy animal programming on any of the Tufts campuses. Students can apply for Paws for People therapy animal teams to support an event for your student organization or group. To apply, please send the following information to hai@tufts.edu:

  • Your name and group/organization
  • Campus and specific location (approval from location to host the event will be required prior to award)
  • Requested date for event *please note that we typically need at minimum 6 weeks of advance notice to schedule events*
  • Expected number of people attending
  • Any additional details

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until all funds have been awarded; students are encouraged to submit applications as soon as possible. Events can be scheduled for the fall or spring semester.
