The Chancellor’s Doctoral Incentive Program (CDIP) aims to increase the number of individuals who demonstrate potential as doctoral students and who may be interested in applying for future CSU instructional faculty positions.
The Chancellor's Doctoral Incentive loan is $10,000 per year for three years and forgivable for those with full- or part-time teaching appointments at a CSU campus. Recipients must be CSU employees in order to receive loan forgiveness. Being awarded the CDI loan is not a guarantee of employment at the CSU.
This exemplary program has been in existence for over 20 years and has resulted in the hiring of over 600 CSU faculty members in a wide range of disciplines. Currently, more than 35 CSULB faculty members are former recipients of this competitive award.
The application period for 2015-16 closed on February 13. Please check back in the fall for application information and deadlines.
