The I.V.A.N. Foundation Scholarship

Support students learning about primate behavior and ecology

Support students learning about primate behavior and ecology

These funds will support hands-on learning experiences for students interested in captive primate care. Most internships or field schools working directly with primate populations are unpaid opportunities, thus leaving the student financially responsible for obtaining this important applied experience. These experiential learning opportunities are integral for students to situate their primate behavior knowledge and learn more about the specifics of caring for primates in the captive setting.

Founded in honor of the late Ivan the Gorilla®, our commitment is to inspire those that share a vision dedicated to the betterment of endangered gorillas.  To raise awareness of their plight and to nurture the ideas of succeeding generations committed to sustaining the natural habitats of our closest relatives worldwide.
