The co-op/internship positions listed at this website specifically focus on providing opportunities for minority students and students from underrepresented groups in the sciences and medicine. If you believe that you qualify, you should definitely explore these exciting opportunities. In addition to the co-ops listed below, quite a few of the organizations that are listed in the much larger list, Co-op/Internship and Summer Research Opportunities in the Life Sciences, are seeking to enhance the ethnic diversity of their programs and thus strongly encourage minority students to apply. You should not hesitate to take advantage of these opportunities as well.

In addition to the valuable experience and good pay that a Co-op or Internship will give you, very many of the Opportunities listed on this website also provide Travel Reimbursement, Housing and Meals.

If travel support, housing and meals are provided, this information will almost always be included in the details about the Co-op or Internship that can be found by clicking on the co-op website next to the organization's name and location.
