Science Talent Expansion Program (STEP)
Support science students today

The Science Talent Expansion Program (STEP) supports STEM students in their first year at CWU to build a community of scholars by organizing early research and engagement experiences, providing a Living Learning Community in Kamola Hall, arranging three courses students take together in their first quarter, and facilitating students in connecting with a faculty mentor. 

STEP provides scholarships to students with financial need.

Here's what students are saying about STEP:

“The STEP program put me on a path towards a STEM career that I may have not have ever considered without diving head first into science with undergrad research. Thank you for that, this program … has shaped my career trajectory and the way I perceive much of the world around me.” – Chemistry major

I think that the most beneficial aspects of STEP is the opportunity it gives students to develop relationships with faculty and benefit from the knowledge and mentorship they provide.” – Geological Science major

This program has surpassed my expectations. The STEP program has helped me to become a better scientist.” – Physics major
