Pursuant to the Regents goal to improve minority access to the licensed professions and careers in technology, the Department administers the Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program (CSTEP). The purpose of CSTEP is to increase the number of historically underrepresented students who enroll in undergraduate or graduate programs leading to professional licensure or to careers in mathematics, science, technology, and health-related fields.  Grants are awarded in a five-year cycle on a competitive basis to postsecondary institutions.  CSTEP provides academic enrichment, internship opportunities and research experience in science, mathematics and technology content areas.  Project components during the academic year and summer also include: supervised training in research methods, graduate/professional school admissions preparation, standardized test preparation and career development activities.
