Collegiate Science & Technology Entry Program (CSTEP)
Fordham University’s Collegiate Science & Technology Entry Program is an award-winning undergraduate scholars program designed to prepare minority and disadvantaged students for careers in science, technology, engineering, math, health and licensed fields. The program, which is part of a statewide effort to address the issue of minority under-representation in these fields, emphasizes academic preparation and achievement and career awareness. Fordham’s program is one of fifty-two programs that exist on college campuses throughout New York State. The program is open to New York State Residents and Out-of-State Residents.
CSTEP provides students with a unique college experience that combines academic services and activities with a variety of networking and career-advancement opportunities. Among those services and activities are paid internships and research opportunities, free tutoring and enrichment/support classes in all pre-med/health required science and mathematics coursework, scholarships for test preparation courses, counseling, career workshops, and much more. Participants share invaluable social interaction and congenial support with fellow students who are among Fordham University’s best and brightest scholars.
The Fordham University CSTEP program is open to undergraduate students from both the Lincoln Center and Rose Hill campuses. Students are encouraged to apply during their first year, but may do so at any point during their college career. Once accepted, students are expected to participate in academic and career activities, and maintain academic excellence.
