Fordham University's Collegiate Science & Technology Entry Program is an undergraduate scholars program designed to prepare minority and economically disadvantaged students for careers in scientific, technical, health-related and licensed professions. CSTEP emphasizes academic preparation and achievement, and career awareness.
CSTEP provides students with a unique college experience that combines academic services and activities with a variety of networking and career-advancement opportunities. 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 Rose Hill and Lincoln Center campuses. Students are encouraged to apply during their first year but may do so at any point during their college careers. Once accepted, students are expected to participate in academic and career activities, and maintain academic excellence.
Meet the minimum 12-month New York State residency requirement.
Note: CSTEP encourages matriculated minority students—who have been historically underrepresented in the scientific, technical and health professions—to apply for admission to the program.
Note: Matriculated, economically disadvantaged students are also eligible to apply for entry to the program. The State of New York has established income requirements for students who seek admission to CSTEP on the basis of economic factors.
