Student Projects

The Foundation also provides mentoring and financial support for selected upper-division, faculty-approved student projects.  The Foundation currently works with Florida Institute of Technology, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Daytona State College and University of Central Florida. A Cairns Foundation goal is to be interactive with the schools and students involved in projects we fund. We, therefore, presently limit our funding to schools in the east central Florida area. Please have a faculty adviser contact the Foundation for further information.


  • For-credit, faculty monitored student science and/or engineering projects
  • Capstone design projects for undergraduates in ABET accredited programs
