CDIP Deadline: February 8, 2016

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. 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.

CA Pre-Doctoral Program Deadline: February 26, 2016

The California Pre-Doctoral Program is designed to increase the pool of potential faculty by supporting the doctoral aspirations of California State University (CSU) students who have experienced economic and educational disadvantages. The program places a special emphasis on increasing the number of CSU students who enter doctoral programs at one of the University of California (UC) institutions. Scholars are exposed to unique opportunities to explore and prepare to succeed in doctoral programs.
