CRISP is a proud sponsor of the Commonwealth STEM
Industry Internship Program (CSIIP)!
According to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, “STEM
jobs — those requiring a science, technology, engineering, or math-related
degree — not only account for more than 10% of jobs in the United States; many
of them pay wages close to double the U.S. average.” [Forbes, July 23, 2014]
In response to the increasing demand
for skilled STEM workers in Virginia, the Virginia Space Grant Consortium (VSGC) has
created the Commonwealth STEM Industry Internship Program (CSIIP). CSIIP links
companies and students in STEM, including but not limited to high-need areas
such as Information Technology, Information Security, Big Data, Data
Analytics, and Cybersecurity.
