The Internship Challenge is a workforce development program focused on enhancing the talent pipeline for Massachusetts companies engaged in the life sciences. The Massachusetts Life Sciences Center (MLSC) facilitates the placement of students and recent graduates who are considering career opportunities in the life sciences in paid internships across the state throughout the year. Consistent with the MLSC’s role as a catalyst in growing the talent needed by the life sciences industry, the Internship Challenge is designed to create hundreds of new internship opportunities each year by enabling small businesses to hire paid interns. The MLSC reimburses eligible companies for intern stipends.

Students looking for an internship in the life sciences complete an online application, which includes their resume and a cover letter. Representatives from companies looking to host interns, after registering with the MLSC, review these applications and select candidates with the qualifications that are most suited to their needs. The MLSC can reimburse eligible companies for intern stipends with a pay rate of up to $15 per hour, for a total reimbursement of up to $7,200 per intern.
