Calling all MBC member companies to join the LIFE SCIENCES INTERNSHIP CHALLENGE

March 17, 2009
MBC member companies have the opportunity to access qualified summer interns through the new Internship Challenge run by the Massachusetts Life Science Center.

Undergraduates concentrating in the study of science, technology, engineering, and math and who have completed at least their junior year in a 4-year academic institution or one year of specialized training in a 2-year college are eligible to apply. Students will be competing for an 8-week internship with a life sciences company or research institution and will receive a stipend of $4,800 from the Center.

The program is designed to eliminate administrative burdens for host companies while providing them with a pool of qualified students. To participate, companies will:
  • Review on-line resumes and applications submitted by the students
  • Interview candidates
  • Notify the Center of an interest in hiring a particular applicant
The MLSC will provide the final approval of institution-intern matches, contingent upon meeting goals of geographic and company or research institution distribution throughout the Commonwealth. Host institutions are challenged to provide meaningful internships to qualified undergraduates and to match Center funds, whenever possible.

Companies that already offer internship programs are also encouraged to participate in the Internship Challenge by using the database to select their interns and also supplement their program with additional interns.

For more information, or to inquire about hosting one or more interns this summer, please contact Ryan Mudawar at or 617-721-5162.
