The CISE (Creative Inquiry Summer Experience) Grant Program provides monetary assistance for paid summer internships that help students develop research and creative inquiry skills? CISE grants are part of Tech’s new Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) named “EDGE: Enhanced Discovery through Guided Exploration.” The only firm requirements are that you are an undergraduate student and that you agree to work with a faculty member this summer, between May and August. Grants are for a maximum of $4,000, with up to $3,500 as a paid stipend.
Each CISE application is evaluated by a minimum of three faculty members who are assigned from the Evaluation Committee. The complete list of faculty members on the Evaluation Committee is found below.
