11th Annual College Fair

The Science and Technology Entry Program (STEP) of New York State invites College Representatives to attend a College Fair at our March statewide student conference! The College Fair will be one of the many exciting events that will take place during the 20th Annual STEP Statewide Student Conference from March 23 to March 25, 2018, at the Marriott Hotel in Albany, New York—(189 Wolf Road, Albany, New York 12205 — (518) 458-8444.)

STEP is comprised of 59 colleges and universities across New York State, and one of its many purposes is to provide middle and high school students with practical experience in the scientific, technical, and health-related fields, and to prepare students for the rigors of college and beyond. Over 450 students and 150 program directors/advisors regularly attend the conference. Do not miss this opportunity to share valuable information about your institution in a forum that captures the attention of perspective students and staff across New York State, those of whom helped to garner the 2003 Presidential Award for Excellence in Science, Mathematics, and Engineering Mentorship (PAESMEM)! More information about this award winning program may be found on the New York State Education Department’s website at or

The College Fair will be held on Saturday, March 24, 2018, from 2:00pm to 4:00pm. Set-up for the fair will be from 1:15pm to 1:45pm. The cost of providing valuable and timely information to this critical mass of students and project administrators is $150.00. (This fee does not include hotel costs or transportation to and from the conference site in Albany, New York).

If your institution has a STEP Program paying conference registration fees for their students, the admissions office can participate in the fair for FREE. However, all non-registered institutions will have to pay the $150.00 fee to participate in the fair.

Please notify the conference committee of your institution's intent to participate in this event by e-mailing or faxing the enclosed form by February 9, 2018 to Mary Stickney (preferred method) or (315) 267-3343 (fax number).
