We welcome applications from rising eighth graders (current seventh graders) who have been nominated by ether a KIPP or local middle school. For nomination guidelines, please refer to the brochure that was emailed to the school liaison.
If you would like to save the application and complete it at a later date, you may do so by clicking on "save and continue" at the bottom of this form. You will be provided a link for finishing the application within 30 days.
Despite the ability to save a partially completed application, we strongly advise that students write and save their short response and essay questions in a separate document. This way, if there is an error in the submission process, students will not lose their short answers and essays.
A complete application and all application materials are due by February 1, 2022 at 11:59 pm EST. We will not be able to accept partially completed applications past the deadline.
For questions about the KIPP STEP nomination and application process, please contact Caitlyn Welch, the KIPP STEP Program Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
