Undergraduate Research at CISER was established in 1992. In that time, Texas Tech
University has received five generous grants in 1992, 1994, 1998, 2002 and 2006 from
the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) Undergraduate Science Education Program
totaling $7.8 million dollars. TTU was the only Texas institution to receive a grant
in the 2002 competition, and is the only Texas institution to had received continuous
funding from HHMI. Until 2014, CISER was primarily funded by the HHMI Undergraduate
Science Education Program. Today, thanks to the generous support from colleges, departments,
and administrators in Texas Tech system, and other grants, TTU CISER is able to continue
supporting Undergraduate Research Scholars in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math).
