Eight grants available for projects exploring human-animal bond.
The Society for Companion Animal Studies (SCAS) has announced that applications are now open for the second round of its three-year funding scheme to support research into the human-animal bond.
This year SCAS is looking for research that focuses on the issues surrounding pets in housing, particularly projects looking at:
- the impact of current, or historic, pet related housing legislation
- an assessment of incident, type and cost of damage caused by pets in housing
- the views of landlords, care institution or housing association staff, in relation to pets and housing
- stakeholder perceptions of pets and housing insurance schemes.
There are eight funding grants available, awarding between £1,500 and £10,000. Applications close on 30 April 2021.
