The Chancellor's Doctoral Incentive Program (CDIP) is a competitive program that provides loans to a limited number of full-time doctoral students at accredited universities across the United States. Its purpose is to increase the pool of individuals who show promise of becoming strong candidates for CSU instructional faculty positions by providing financial assistance to doctoral students with the motivation, skills, and experience needed to teach the diverse student body in the CSU. It is a competitive program open to doctoral students across the country. The Program provides loans of up to $10,000 per year and may borrow a maximum of $30,000 over a five-year period. Participants who successfully obtain a CSU faculty position will have twenty percent of the loan forgiven for each year of full-time postdoctoral teaching at a CSU campus. Part-time postdoctoral teaching in the CSU may also be considered for partial loan forgiveness. Please see http://www.calstate.edu/HR/cdip/ for CSU system wide information.
