The Science and Technology Entry Program (STEP)

The Science and Technology Entry Program (STEP) at New York University (NYU) is a state-funded innovative pre-college enrichment program for talented and motivated African American, Hispanic/Latino, Alaskan Native or American Indian and economically disadvantaged White or Asian middle and high school students. Our goal is to:

  • prepare our students to be competitive so that they are accepted into a selective college of their choice
  • encourage and increase the number of historically under-represented minority groups in the science, technology, engineering, math (STEM) careers, health-related fields and licensed professions.
