Chancellor's Doctoral Incentive Program (CDIP)

The California State University Chancellor's Doctoral Incentive Program (CDIP) provides professional and academic support to doctoral students aspiring to teach the diverse students of the CSU system. At the foundation of the CDIP is the mentorship between a CSU faculty member and the fellow. CDIP also provides opportunities for professional development workshops, social connection, grant, and research support, and if necessary, financial assistance in the form of a forgivable loan.

California Pre-Doctoral Scholarship

The California Pre-Doctoral Program is designed to diversify the pool of university faculty by supporting the doctoral aspirations of students who are upper division undergraduates or master's students on a California State University campus, economically or educationally disadvantaged, with focused research interests, and an interest in a university faculty career.

Students who are chosen for this prestigious award are designated "Sally Casanova Pre-Doctoral Scholars" as a tribute to Dr. Sally Casanova, for whom the scholarship is named.
