Research plays a prominent role in the life of a typical Arts and Sciences graduate student. Working closely with Tufts faculty, they research everything from honeybees and paper wasps at the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine to learning disabilities in classrooms in Greece. They don scuba gear to study coral reefs in the Caribbean and participate in archaeological digs in Europe. They visit the plains of Kenya to study Zebras and wade through the lakes and ponds of Massachusetts to explore the impact of pollution.
Tufts graduate students go other places as well as part of their research. Each year, they attend conferences, both in the United States and abroad, and present their research findings to leaders in their respective fields.
Many graduate students require funding to conduct their research. The links below share some of the funding opportunities that are available both at Tufts and outside the university.
