TIHAI Student Scholars Program

Applications open for the 2019 Student Scholars Program

TIHAI is currently accepting proposals for the 2019 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, 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.

Applicants may apply for up to $500 in funding for their projects.

Deadline: Please submit all application materials via email to hai@tufts.edu by 5:00 pm on April 16, 2019. Applicants will be notified about funding decisions by May 1, 2019.

Please see the 2019 TIHAI Student Scholars RFP for full application guidelines.

The TIHAI Scholars Program is generously funded in part by the Elizabeth A. Lawrence Fund through the Center for Animals and Public Policy.
