The Caribbean Diaspora for Science, Technology and Innovation – New England, Inc. (CADSTI-NE) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization focused on promoting science and technology for Caribbean youth.

Our overall mission is to assist in diversifying the economies of the Caribbean by harnessing science and technology for economic development, and in doing so, help raise the region’s standard of living.

CADSTI-NE’s major projects are to:

(1) Organize and sponsor internships for Caribbean students at biotech and high-tech companies in the U.S., the Caribbean and Canada

(2) Support the Student Program for Innovation, Science and Engineering (SPISE), an intensive four-week enrichment residential summer program for gifted Caribbean high school students

The CADSTI-NE organizing committee works tirelessly throughout the year, meeting nearly every Sunday morning to raise funds for, plan, coordinate and implement this program. We could not have done any of this without your support. These projects are made possible through generous donations from organizations and individuals in the Diaspora and the Caribbean, and through partnerships with US, Caribbean, Canadian, and UK companies.

CADSTI-NE is seeking additional companies that are willing to host Caribbean interns. Please contact our President, Dr. Dinah Sah, at

Thank you for sharing in our vision to provide these amazing opportunities in science and engineering for our very gifted Caribbean students!
