Ohio State’s Second-year Transformational Experience Program (STEP) was developed as a continuation of the university’s effort to redefine the student experience. STEP is designed to focus on student success and development and will allow students the opportunity to engage in activities that cater to their individual interests and needs.
A central feature of STEP is giving participants the chance to engage with faculty outside of the classroom in one-on-one meetings as well as in group settings. During their time together, STEP Faculty will help students explore unique, educational-enriching experiences including the following categories:
· Study Abroad
· Undergraduate Research
· Service Learning and Community Service
· Artistic and Creative Endeavors
Following the completion of program requirements, students will be eligible to receive a fellowship of up to $2,000 that will support the experience they have developed with the help of a member of the STEP Faculty. This funding is meant to help students engage in experiences they may not otherwise be able to do.
