CSTEP Scholar Benefits
The cornerstone of the CSTEP experience is the relationship between scholars and the program’s academic counselors, who work with students one on one throughout their time at Fordham.
Whether it’s help with your class schedule, reviewing personal statements, or finding summer research programs and internships, your counselor is always there to support you.
