Project Onramp is a Life Science Cares program that helps connect Federal Pell-Grant recipients with companies in the Greater Boston Area for full-time, paid summer internships and their respective professional development programs. The overarching field for all companies is “life sciences” but students of all majors are encouraged to participate.
These summer internships provide real world experience to those looking to gain the relevant knowledge and skills required to enter a particular career field. They are short-term with the primary focus of getting students on-the-job training, applying their classroom knowledge to the real world, and are an excellent way to begin building important connections that are invaluable in developing and maintaining a strong professional network in the future. Students who apply for RHSA’s Project Onramp program are provided guided support in the prior fall and spring to help them prepare to apply, interview, and, ideally, accept a summer internship.
