Science and Technology Entry Program (STEP)

It’s never too early to start thinking about college and planning your career!

The Fordham Science and Technology Entry Program (STEP) is an academic enrichment program, established in 1986, designed to prepare underrepresented minority and economically disadvantaged junior high and high school students (grades 7-12) for college and careers in STEM fields (science, technology, engineering, and math) fields, health careers, and licensed professions, like accounting, law, psychology, social work among other licensed fields.

The STEP program takes place at Fordham's Rose Hill campus in the Bronx and at Fordham's Lincoln Center campus in Manhattan. Activities also take place at local school and partner sites.
