Life Science Internships (Paid)
The program facilitates the placement of college students and recent graduates who are considering career opportunities in the life sciences in paid internships across the state. Consistent with the MLSC’s role as a catalyst in growing the talent needed by the life sciences industry, the program is designed to create hundreds of new internship opportunities each year by enabling small businesses to hire paid interns.Objectives of the Internship Challenge include expanding the pool of prospective employees who have practical experience, enhancing opportunities for mentoring, enabling more students to explore career opportunities despite the challenging economic environment, and providing to students interested in working in the life sciences a peer network through educational and informational networking events.
MLSC has funded over 3,800 internships at more than 750 companies throughout Massachusetts, since the Internship Challenge first launched in 2009.
Internships can be part or full time and can take place throughout the Program Year, which runs from May 1st through April 30th.
