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)

 

• UCSD – STARS (USA)

 

• VML (USA)

 

• Voyager Therapeutics (USA)

 

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