The CSR runs and internship programme aimed at grooming young and upcoming researchers in their fields of research as well those of their mentors at the CSR. The first internship programme running from 2014 was jointly sponsored by the National Commission of Sciences and Technology (NCST) and the CSR. From 2016, the internship programme is now run alongside the government initiated internship programme through which fresh graduates are attached to various government ministries, departments and agencies.
