The Chancellor's Doctoral Incentive Program (CDIP) is open to applicants who will be new or continuing fulltime students in doctoral programs at accredited universities anywhere in the United States.
Applicants are not required to have attended the CSU nor to be accepted in a doctoral program at the time of their application. Employment in California State University is also not required.

Applications for the Chancellor's Doctoral Incentive Program (CDIP) are first submitted through a CSU campus. Applications are due at the campus coordinator's office on a date specified by that office (typically in February, but the date varies by campus). A campus committee evaluates the applications and makes recommendations for further consideration to the campus president. The president then forwards campus nominations to the Chancellor's Office. A systemwide committee reviews the campus nominations and makes recommendations to the chancellor for final approval. Applicants are typically notified of their application status in May.
INTERNAL CAMPUS DEADLINE FOR 2014-2015 APPLICATIONS: FEBRUARY 2015
