Some of the most innovative programs at CCS are made possible through grant and sponsored research funding. We’ve cultivated opportunities in aerospace and advanced manufacturing, provided middle school girls with STEM summer camps, served our community through sustainable environmental science projects and collaborated with rural K-12 partners on college and career readiness initiatives. Take a look at the stories and learn about opportunities for students, and faculty to create new and innovative programs with help from Grants & Sponsored Research at CCS.
