GROW Student Intern Application


The GROW Internship Program provides crucial, early-career paid opportunities in the regenerative medicine sector to Black undergraduate and graduate students. ARM represents 450+ organizations in the cell, gene, and tissue-based therapies sector that target a range of diseases and disorders, many of which affect the Black community. ARM convenes the diverse stakeholders in our community to tackle key issues limiting the progress of the sector and the delivery of transformational therapies to patients. A report released by BIO in June 2021, found that Black Americans comprise only 7% of biotechnology company workforces while making up over 13% of the US population.  ARM and the AFE Task Force believe that improving the representation of Black employees at ARM member organizations and cultivating a community of these future leaders is fundamental to achieving the full promise of our work 

Goal of the Program

The goal of the program is to increase the disproportionate number of Black employees and executives in ARM member organizations, and to build a strong and ongoing community of GROW interns. We hope that the exposure and experience you gain during your internships will spark a passion for your desire to work in the regenerative medicine field.
