The Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program (CSTEP) is funded by New York State Department of Education, Bureau of Professional Career Opportunity Programs. This initiative provides services for students from under-represented populations or economically disadvantaged backgrounds seeking careers in the sciences, mathematics, and technological fields, or one of the licensed professions in New York State. The mission of CSTEP is to foster academic excellence, teach effective long-term career management skills and create meaningful pre-professional experiences for program participants. Students may join CSTEP at any time during their college careers.
