  • SPISE

    The annual Student Program for Innovation in Science and Engineering (SPISE) is an intensive four-week enrichment residential summer program for promising Caribbean high-school students who are interested in studying and exploring careers in science and engineering. The goal is to help address the low numbers of Caribbean students pursuing advanced degrees in science and engineering. The sponsorship cost per student is US$6,000 plus round trip travel to Barbados. Learn more

  • Student Internship Program

    Summer internships provide 6th form and university students with research experience within a company or academic laboratory in the U.S. or the Region. Students learn laboratory techniques, conduct experiments, publish papers from their work, and network with the scientific community. Learn more.

  • Caribbean Visionaries Challenge

    The CSF is seeking sponsors to join Sagicor in support of the CSF Caribbean Visionaries Challenge. More details about the existing Sagicor Visionaries Challenge can be found at sagicorvisionaries.com

  • Barbados Junior Robotics Camp

    The CSF's Junior Robotics Camp is an annual summer enrichment program for young Barbadian students interested in robotics. The aim of the day camp is to introduce basic technology and engineering concepts to children between the ages of 9 to 12. For more information click here.

  • STEM Teacher Training Project

    CSF believes that STEM teacher training is the first and single most important step in changing the culture and attitude towards STEM in the Region. This program will be carried out as a summer-school program in collaboration with the Caribbean Academy of Sciences and the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC).

  • CaribVenture

    CaribVenture is a partnership between the CSF, CADSTI and well-known technology investors, executives and entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley. Through CaribVenture, the CSF intends to help foster an entrepreneurial culture in the Caribbean and facilitate the launch and growth of technology-based start-up Caribbean businesses. See more.

  • CSF Regional Operations

    Regional outreach is carried out principally by the CSF Country Representatives. CSF Reps are appointed in almost every Caribbean territory. These Reps report on the science, technology and innovation initiatives in their country to the CSF Board on a periodic basis as well as work closely with CSF headquarters to assist with achieving the goals of the CSF. Detailed responsibilities of CSF Reps can be found here.

  • CADSTI Branch Operations

    CADSTI branches are groups of science, engineering and business experts and professionals in the Diaspora who are interested in giving back by promoting STEM education and technology-based entrepreneurship in the Region. CADSTI has its headquarters in the Boston area, with active branches in the UK, New England, the US Southeast, Canada and Silicon Valley. Funds are needed specifically for the setup of CADSTI Branches and the recruitment of volunteers to run the Branches.

  • Administrative Support within CSF Headquarters

    The work of the CSF is impeded by a shortage of full-time staff. Reliable funding to maintain current staff positions and to fill additional staff positions is critical for expediting the growth of the organization while addressing the need for succession planning.
