Due to the Coronavirus, the STEP Fund has made several adjustments to its operations and protocols.  Please continue to check back to this page for updates or call or text 301-876-4419 for more information.

Update:  For Scholarship Award Benefits and Tuition Reimbursement Awards, the Board has created a limited exception to the requirements for Employees and their contributing employers.  Now through June 2021, Employees interested in applying for a Tuition Reimbursement Award and their eligible dependents interested in applying for a Scholarship Award Benefit will be able to do so if, as of March 2020:

  1. The Employee was a current employee of a contributing employer; and
  2. The contributing employer made contributions to the Fund on the Employee’s behalf for the last 12 out of 18 months.

Update:  In-person courses have been suspended for the time being.  The STEP Fund intends to offer remote learning for the majority of its courses where legally permitted to do so.  Course offerings on this site will be updated periodically, so please check back or contact the STEP Fund directly for further information.
