STEP is funded by a NYS Education Department Title I Grant
The Science and Technology Entry Program (STEP) has successfully operated on the SUNY New Paltz campus for over 30 years. It is funded by the State Education Department and has as its mission the enhancement of the math, science and technology skills of minority and low-income students from local high schools. Ultimately, its goal is to encourage these participating students to continue their education after graduation in the fields of mathematics, science, technology and/or the licensed professions where minorities are traditionally underrepresented.
The STEP program challenges students' existing skills, develops new ones and provides motivation and practical assistance to participants in setting and meeting their educational goals.
