CSU, Chancellor’s Doctoral Incentive Program (CDIP) 2014/2015 applications now available:        

CDIP provides financial assistance to students pursuing doctoral degrees. CDIP, a recruitment incentive program, is open to all graduate students at accredited institutions who are not probationary or tenured faculty members in the CSU.

Participants receive loans up to $30,000. Participants accepting tenure-track CSU instructional faculty position after earning the doctoral degree will have 20% of the loan forgiven per each year of full-time postdoctoral teaching employment in the CSU.  Recipients, however, are not obligated to return to a CSU after completion of their doctoral degree. They can pay off the low-interest loan over a period of 15 years.

Applications are encouraged from new or continuing full-time students in doctoral programs at accredited universities anywhere in the United States during the 2013/2014 academic year.  Lecturers intending to pursue or already pursuing a doctoral degree are also eligible.
