2024 MLSC Internship Programming Now Open

The MLSC is excited to announce that applications are now open for the 2024 Internship Challenge, High School Apprenticeship Challenge, and Data Science Internship program.

  • Internship Challenge: Creates hundreds of new internship opportunities each year for college students interested in pursuing careers in the industry. The program connects Massachusetts companies with students and provides funding that enables small companies, with 100 or fewer employees, to hire paid interns for up to 12 weeks. 
  • High School Apprenticeship Challenge: Facilitates and funds paid internships for underrepresented and low-income high school students throughout Massachusetts. The program also offers a pre-internship lab training program for some school districts that provides rigorous biotechnology/biomedical and professional skills development.
  • Data Science Internship Program: Focuses on increasing the availability of advanced analytics/data science talent in the life sciences. The program creates new internship opportunities for qualified candidates, including those at the Bachelor’s, Master’s, and Doctoral levels by enabling research institutions and small life sciences companies to hire paid interns for up to six months.
