About CSTEP/LSAMP

Though sharing one site and offering many shared services, these programs are not the same. They are tailored to different audiences. The following describe their respective requirements and services.

Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program (CSTEP)

Overview:

The goal of the Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program (CSTEP) is to promote academic excellence and to provide support services for its participants. The mandate of this New York State Education Department-funded program is to increase the numbers of underrepresented minority and income-eligible college students pursuing degrees in scientific, technological, health, and health-related fields of study, including many areas where licensure is required.

CSTEP is funded by the New York State Education Department and administered through the Department of Technology and Society, College of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Stony Brook Univerity.

Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (SUNY LSAMP)

Overview:

Stony Brook University is the project headquarters and the lead institution of the State University of New York Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation. In addition to Stony Brook, alliance partners are the University at Binghamton, the University at Buffalo, Buffalo State College, SUNY College at New Paltz, the University at Albany, SUNY College at Old Westbury, SUNY at Farmingdale, and several community colleges within each region.

SUNY LSAMP is funded to increase the number of underrepresented minorities (African-American, Latino, Native American, Alaskan Native, Hawaiian Native, and Native Pacific Islander) who pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The LSAMP program is especially interested in high-achieving students who intend to pursue post-baccalaureate studies in science or mathematics and bachelor degrees in engineering. The SUNY LSAMP program is not funded to support, and consequently will not support, students declaring majors in pre-medicine, nursing, or allied health sciences.

SUNY LSAMP and Stony Brook LSAMP are funded by the National Science Foundation, Division of Human Resource Development, and administered through the Department of Technology and Society, College of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Stony Brook University.
