The ASI-WAS Human-Animal Studies Fellowship was started by the Animals and Society Institute (ASI) in 2007 and enabled 6-8 fellows to pursue research in residence at Wesleyan University at the College of the Environment. In 2010, ASI began a partnership with Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut, which hosted the fellowship from 2010-2016. The fellowship was designed to support recipients’ individual research in human-animal studies as well as to promote interdisciplinary exchange among the fellows.
Starting in 2017, we are replacing the human-animal studies fellowship with a summer human-animal studies institute. Please visit this page to find out more about it!
