Tufts UEP Field Project Host Application Deadline


September 8, 2020

Each spring, first-year Masters students in the Tufts Urban & Environmental Policy & Planning (UEP) must complete the Field Projects course, where students work in teams of 3-5 on projects hosted by real-world partners. We invite you to propose a project idea for the Spring 2021 Field Projects course.

Field Projects integrates theory and practice by providing graduate students with the opportunity to work on real-world challenges with government, nonprofit, community, and private sector partners. Attached is a brief description of the Field Projects program and what to expect as a project host. We are looking to develop 9 projects for next spring. Given the uncertainty of the pandemic, we are asking for hosts to propose projects that could be done remotely, if necessary (though Tufts is planning the return of students to campus this Fall).

To submit a project idea, please email a brief (half-page to a page) description by September 8, 2020 to Penn Loh ( After we review these project ideas, we will select 9-11 organizations with whom we will work more intensively to develop full project proposals by end of October.

We look forward to reviewing your project ideas. To see what past UEP Field Projects teams have accomplished, take a look at recent projects, which are posted online at:

Please note that we ask project hosts to assist with the often-considerable expense of producing professional-grade deliverables -- $100-200 depending on the resources of the host organization.

Please contact Penn Loh ( if you have any questions.
