The College of Science and Mathematics has developed research programs for faculty and students through funding from:
- National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Historically Black College and Universities Undergraduate Program (HBCU-UP)
- NSF’s VI Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (VI-EPSCoR)
- National Institutes of Health (NIH) Minority Biomedical Research Support-Research Initiative for Scientific Enhancement program (MBRS-RISE)
- NIH’s Minority Access to Research Careers (MARC) Program.
- NSF’s Southeast Alliance for Graduate Education to the Professoriate (SEAGEP) Project
The college encourages faculty-student research projects and excellence in undergraduate education and undergraduate preparation for post baccalaureate study and the workforce through its Emerging Caribbean Scientists (ECS) Programs. The mission of the ECS Programs is to increase research training and promote excellence for students at the University of the Virgin Islands. Visit the program's website at http://ecs.uvi.edu for more information about opportunities and scholarships for UVI students.
Though many students participating in the ECS activities are supported directly through federal grant programs, the ECS program reaches all students through student professional development workshops and scientific presentations by faculty and visiting scientists, as well as through curriculum development. Three Research Symposia (Fall, Spring, and Summer) are sponsored yearly by the College of Science and Mathematics and the Emerging Caribbean Scientists Programs.
