On October 20, 2012, the Associated Medical Schools of New York, along with the Bronx/Manhattan C/STEP Region, the City College of New York and the Mount Sinai School of Medicine hosted the 3rd Annual STEP/CSTEP College Fair.

Held at the City College of New York, the college fair welcomed over 600 New York State STEP students and 200 parents. Students and parents were able to meet with admissions and CSTEP representatives from 50 colleges and universities. In addition, students and parents participated in workshops addressing the college application process, transitioning to college and financial aid.

The Science and Technology Entry Program (STEP) and the Collegiate Science and Technology Program (CSTEP) are opportunity programs funded by the New York State Education Department. Both programs serve a population of highly motivated educationally, economically and underrepresented high-school and college students. These students are interested in entering the fields of science, technology, medicine or the allied health professions.
