  • Sometimes a great summer internship may be unpaid or offer a small stipend. Thanks to our generous donors, CCI provides internship grants on a competitive basis. Recently, Anna Notaro ’24 utilized a CCI grant to collaborate with John Lower ‘16 while interning with the Kibale Chimpanzee Project (KCP) in Uganda. She followed chimpanzees from dawn to dusk, collecting data and engaging with a vibrant community of scientists at the Makerere University Biological Field Station.
