TIHAI Student Scholars Program

2021 TIHAI Student Scholars Program

Applications are now open for the 2021 TIHAI Student Scholars Program!

The Tufts Institute for Human-Animal Interaction is currently accepting proposals for the 2021 Human-Animal Interaction (HAI) Student Scholars Program. HAI Student Scholars program will accept requests from Tufts students 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.

Please note that all applications must adhere to university COVID-19 policies. For more information, visit: https://coronavirus.tufts.edu/

Deadline: Please submit all application materials via email to hai@tufts.edu by 5:00 pm on April 1, 2021. Applicants will be notified about funding decisions by April 15, 2021.

Please see the 2021 TIHAI Student Scholars RFP for full application guidelines.
