Intern Program Management

From intern to investment

As all signs point to increasing difficulties in finding the qualified scientific talent you’ll need, you can invest in the future of your workforce through scientific interns.

Kelly identified the need to develop students into more competitive candidates in the workforce. We founded the Future Scientists Program (FSP) in 2000 as a result, steadily building a strong base of talented science students who have the potential to make a positive impact on the industry. Our internship program is ultimately an opportunity for bright students and top companies to connect, and its success has been astounding.

We’ve placed thousands of interns in companies like yours—in disciplines that include pharmaceutical, biotech, device, petrochemical, agriculture, environmental science, clinical research, and more.

A pipeline of professionals

Successful science students need the right combination of academic and real-world experience to enhance their skills. After all, the knowledge they gain today is the foundation for tomorrow’s scientific advancements. Through the FSP, internships become more than contract assignments: they become mutual learning processes. Our internships allow students to shape their choices for academic coursework and career direction—and help your organization feed the pipeline of experienced professionals for critical, hard-to-fill roles.

The team at Kelly can help you launch your scientific intern program, or we can assume the administrative aspects of your existing program, through: 

  • Orientation/administrative processing
  • Issuing weekly pay
  • Addressing tax issues
