“The Big Waive” a gift to Cape Ann’s young adults
Gloucester Biotechnology Academy has announced a new financial structure to support young adults’ investment in their futures. Through the generous support of donors, tuition and fees will be waived in their entirety for the Academy’s incoming class of 2023. In addition, qualifying students will receive stipends to help support their living expenses.
The Academy trains young adults for professional careers as life sciences laboratory technicians. Students spend seven months of hands-on learning in a state-of-the-art teaching facility located in Gloucester’s Blackburn Center, followed by a three-month paid internship at a biotech company in Boston, Cambridge, or the North Shore.
Spaces are still available for the incoming class of 2023, with start dates in both August and November. The program is open to students between the ages of 18 and 30 with a high school diploma or equivalent — no math or science experience is needed to apply. Interested students can learn more and download the application on our website (gmgi.org/education/apply), or reach out to Director of Enrollment and Partnerships Laura Richane.
