Candidates Sought for Fifth Annual Scholarship for Research on the
Relationship Between Humans and Companion Animals

CAIRC is now accepting applications for the Fifth Annual Scholarship for Research on the Relationship Between Humans and Companion Animals, to be selected in April 2002. CAIRC, which established the scholarship in 1998, awarded it to 3 researchers in the initial year. In 1999, and 2000, it was awarded to 5 recipients, and for 2001 5 recipients are currently conducting research under its auspices. Potential candidates seeking application guidelines and forms are requested to submit by fax (03-5468-5752) a letter of intent to apply.

The study of relations between humans and animals is a relatively new field of endeavor that is taking hold among veterinary and zoological researchers. It is being approached from diverse fields in addition to veterinary and zoological science, such as medicine, education, law, sociology and architecture. Scholarship awardees in fiscal 2000 and 2001 were chosen from among a wide range of fields of study such as sociology, psychology, cultural anthropology and genetics.

We at CAIRC are working to create a richer social environment through fostering harmonious symbiosis between humans and companion animals. In this spirit, we would like to support young and outstanding researchers in this field. We look forward to your applications.
