Fellows become part of the growing group of TIE scholars: students, research associates, alumni, and visiting faculty members selected for their ongoing and potential contributions to environmental research and education.
Each spring incoming fellows meet for an introduction to the TIE Fellowship Program. Bringing together members of the TIE community, outgoing fellows are invited to share their experiences and research projects with new fellows. Students are also given a review of the fellowship requirements, expectations, and an opportunity to ask questions about the fellowship.
At the beginning of the fall semester, fellows meet for a half-day retreat to share their experiences on research conducted over the summer. The event brings together fellows across multiple disciplines to exchange ideas and provide feedback on the challenges faced in their projects.
At the end of the fall semester Fellows, alumni, faculty and staff gather for dinner and formal reception to celebrate the ongoing accomplishments of TIE Fellows.
TIE Fellowship Request for Proposals Deadline
Proposals for the TIE Fellowship are due in March. Students pursuing projects that focus on environmental research with a specifically interdisciplinary focus are especially encouraged to apply. Fellowships are available to Master’s and Ph.D. students. Read the 2013 RFP here.
By the end of the academic year, fellows present their research to the Tufts community at a range of environmental events: department seminars, thesis or dissertation presentations, the Environmental Studies Lunch and Learn, or Tufts Research Days.
End of Year Barbecue at TIE Director’s house
At the end of the spring semester fellows are invited to Director Antje Danielson’s house for an informal end of year celebration.
