Professor Cardinal Warde, Interim Executive Director of the CSF, who launched SPISE in 2012, said, “The program’s goal is to help groom the next generation of Caribbean science and engineering leaders. Creativity, innovation, teamwork and excellence are the standards at SPISE, and the students will graduate with not only newly found knowledge but also increased self-confidence.”
SPISE graduates have received assistance with their university applications, and are eligible for internship positions in the Caribbean, Canada and the USA. This will give them hands on experience within their fields of interest.
