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

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).

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
