The LifeSci NYC Internship Program

The LifeSci NYC Internship Program is the City of New York's innovative, paid internship program to develop the City's next generation of life sciences leaders.

The growth of New York City’s life sciences industry depends on attracting and retaining a steady stream of qualified talent to start companies and fill essential roles, especially as New York City’s $1 billion investment is projected to create 40,000 jobs in the industry. The City has a vested interest in preparing a diverse range of New York City students for careers in the life sciences sector.

The program provides quality internships for undergraduate and graduate students, while offering curriculum and training support with refined “hard” skills in the sciences and “soft” skills of professional and personal development.
