The Rewards of Residency

CSU Rise - Special Ed 30 Sec 

Living Stipend

A grant from the United States Department of Education, Office of Innovation and Improvement makes it possible for California State University, Chico to provide a living stipend grant of $20,000 OR $25,000 to individuals who have been admitted to the RiSE Program.

Stipend recipients must successfully complete all requirements for the credential and master's degree, and fulfill three years of full-time teaching service in an approved high-need K-12 school, preferably one served by the LEA in the eligible partnership. Failure to satisfy these obligations will result in a requirement to repay all grant funds received.
