Promoting Science & Technology for Caribbean Youth


CADSTI-NE Internship Program


The Student Internship Program was launched in 2014 by CADSTI-NE. It offers internships for SPISE graduates (who are currently Caribbean post-secondary or tertiary students) at biotech, high tech and other organizations in the U.S., Canada, UK and Caribbean. The internships are approximately 4 – 12 weeks in duration and give the students first-hand working experience to see how STEM is applied to research and development. Specifically, the internships at companies provide an opportunity to:


• See the diverse career paths available in that industry


• Learn new laboratory techniques and skills


• Observe how equipment is operated, maintained, and controlled


• Network with individuals associated with that industry


• Observe the operations and infrastructure of a company



In the period 2014 - 2019, CADSTI-NE facilitated 44 internships for students from the Caribbean at the following 16 host organizations:


• Alexion Pharmaceuticals (USA)


• Boston University (USA)


• CAMP4 Therapeutics (USA)


• Cogen Therapeutics (USA)


• Emera Caribbean (Barbados)


• Foursquare Rum Distillery (Barbados)


• GE (UK)


• Genesis Engineering Solutions (USA)


• Harris Paints (Jamaica)


• Peloton International (Canada)


• Sagicor Life Insurance (Barbados, Trinidad, Jamaica, USA)


• Synageva BioPharma (USA)


• Trinidad Systems Limited (Trinidad)






• Voyager Therapeutics (USA)


We are tremendously grateful to the host organizations for providing these transformative experiences for our Caribbean students!


CADSTI-NE plans to facilitate additional internships each summer.  Please contact for further information.
