Grad Stepping Program
The Grad Stepping Program is an initiative of the American Psychological Association’s Division 46 (Society for Media Psychology and Technology) Student Committee to increase the recruitment, retention, and graduation of students who are underrepresented in the field of psychology. The program is open to any undergraduate students (2-year or 4-year colleges and universities) or anyone over 18 not currently enrolled in college but interested in pursuing psychology in college in the future, and who identifies with one or more underrepresented groups.
Underrepresented is defined broadly here to include racially/ethnically minoritized individuals, LGBTQ individuals, individuals with disabilities, immigrants, international students, first-generation and/or low-income students, individuals who have experience with homelessness, individuals with former justice involvement, and former foster youth. Applicants can also self-identify with unlisted groups that are underrepresented in psychology.
