Chancellor's Doctoral Incentive Program

The Chancellor's Doctoral Incentive Program (CDIP) is the largest program in the nation designed to increase the pool of individuals with the qualifications, motivation, and skills to teach the diverse body in the CSU by providing financial assistance to doctoral students who have strong promise of becoming candidates for CSU faculty positions. Participants may borrow $30,000 during a 3 to 5 year period while they are enrolled in a Ph.D. program. If participants accept a faculty position in any of the 23 CSU colleges or universities after graduation, one-fifth of their loan is forgiven for each year of service in the California State University system.
