TIHAI Student Scholars Program

2022 TIHAI Student Scholars Program

Applications are open for the 2022 TIHAI Scholars Program!

The Tufts Initiative for Human-Animal Interaction (TIHAI) at the Center for Animals and Public Policy is currently accepting proposals for the 2022 Human-Animal Interaction (HAI) Student Scholars Program.

Projects may be geared towards activities that benefit people, animals, or both, although activities that benefit both will be given priority. Proposals that involve harm or stress to animals will not be considered. Topics may be related to any area of HAI, such as animal policy, 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 at least one Tufts University faculty or staff mentor. Applications from graduate or undergraduate students from all Tufts campuses are welcomed, and cross-campus collaborations are highly encouraged.

Deadlines: The 2022 TIHAI Scholars Program will accept applications for two deadlines. Please submit all application materials via email to hai@tufts.edu.

Round 1: Applications due June 1, 2022. Applicants will be notified about funding decisions by July 1.

Round 2: Applications due October 1, 2022. Applications will be notified about funding decisions by November 1.
