|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.
