The Massachusetts Life Sciences Center (MLSC)

The Massachusetts Life Sciences Center (MLSC) is excited to announce the launch of the next round of our Internship Challenge! This year-round workforce development program focuses on enhancing the talent pipeline for Massachusetts life sciences companies by providing college students and recent graduates with hands-on work experience through internship opportunities at life sciences companies. The program creates hundreds of new internships each year by enabling small companies to hire paid interns. Since 2009, the MLSC has facilitated the placement of over 3,300 internships at more than 680 companies across the Commonwealth!

We kindly request that you and your institution assist us in notifying students about this opportunity.

This year, the program will offer paid internships to more than 500 college students and recent graduates who are considering career opportunities in the life sciences. Host companies will commit to providing a dedicated mentor and meaningful internship opportunity that relates to the academic focus of students. Studies have shown the value and necessity of providing students with paid internships, and we hope that this opportunity to explore a career path in life sciences will enhance the students' academic training.
We accept applications from eligible students via our website year-round, but the new application for internships taking place this summer is now open. There is no application deadline but students are urged to apply between February and April for increased opportunity to secure a summer placement.
Companies that register with us to host interns are given access to review applications and are instructed to contact students directly for interviews. The MLSC is offering to reimburse companies (with 100 or fewer employees in MA) for intern stipends of up to $8,160 for students selected through the program (amount is based on a pay rate of $17/hour for 12 weeks).

Any student enrolled in a Massachusetts college or university is eligible to apply, provided that they meet the following eligibility requirements:

  • 2-year/Community College/Certificate students must be enrolled in an Associate's Degree or Certificate program or have completed one within the past year.
