For Employers

Employment in the Massachusetts biotech industry is expected to grow by about 16 percent in the five years ending May 2024, according to a recent forecast by MassBioEd. Where will these new workers come from? Will they have the experience they need, to immediately contribute to our expanding industry?

Project Onramp is one way that Massachusetts life science companies can ensure that they tap a local source of diverse talent as they advance their pipelines and mature.

We are looking for paid internships in hard science and in business disciplines, including marketing, communications, HR and administration. Offering Project Onramp internships is an investment in your industry’s future: you are giving talented students without access a way to learn about careers in the life sciences. Financial support from the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center can subsidize each intern’s salary up to $8,160 per summer, for companies of fewer than 100 employees.

Learn more about Project Onramp and how these talented college students can help your firm grow now and in the future. Please contact Program Manager Lila Neel: Lila@lifesciencecares.org.

Project Onramp is ready to break down barriers and speed students from low-income backgrounds to success—while helping our member companies build the statewide labor pool and boost diversity.

Commit to diversifying your internship talent pipeline!
