Internships — Learning and Networking

Each year, the Lasker Foundation invites undergraduate, medical, and graduate students to join the team for a summer internship. Working closely with the Foundation staff, interns help prepare our programs, work on videos, and suggest fresh and creative approaches to enhance our initiatives. Throughout the internship, students get a chance to attend lectures, meet eminent scientists, learn about the day-to-day office business of a nonprofit foundation, and expand their professional network.
