The goal of the CSTEP program is to increase the number of under-represented groups in STEM-related fields and to facilitate bridges for student research with scientists at four year colleges and universities. Learn more about the benefits of joining CSTEP.
Under-represented groups include individuals who describe themselves as being African American, Hispanic/Latino, Native American, or Alaskan Native. Individuals who do not fall under these classifications can still join the CSTEP program based on economic need. Learn more about the economic eligibility requirements for CSTEP.
CSTEP promotes academic excellence, and so a minimum grade point average of 2.75 is required to enter the program.
At BMCC, CSTEP involves doing a research project under the guidance of a faculty mentor, weekly workshops and seminars, and participation in the BMCC Annual Research Symposium, held in May 2018. Learn more about the CSTEP student research presentations.
