Massachusetts Life Sciences Internship Challenge Info. Session

Nov 15 • 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Presenter: Alexis Jackson of Mass Life Sciences Center
Facilitators: Mary Sullivan/Vanecia Harrison-Sanders and Alexis Jackson

The Internship Challenge connects employers with college students and recent graduates through an online platform and reimburses eligible companies (100 or fewer employees in Massachusetts; no more than 250 globally) for intern stipends.

Internships can be part or full time and can take place any time during the 12-month Program Year, which runs from May 1 through April 30. Candidates submit an online application, which includes their resume and a cover letter, to be posted in the MLSC’s application database (candidates do not apply to a particular company or for a specific position). There is no application deadline since internship placements are rolling.
