CSUN: Chancellors Doctoral Incentive Program

We are pleased to announce that the California State University is seeking applications for the 2018-19 Chancellor’s Doctoral Incentive Program (CDIP).  The purpose of the Program is to increase the number of individuals who demonstrate potential as doctoral students and who may be interested in applying for future CSU instructional faculty.

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 CSUN faculty members are former recipients of this competitive award.

The program is open to applicants who will be new or continuing full-time students in doctoral programs at regionally accredited universities anywhere within the United States. Applicants are not required to have attended the CSU or to have been accepted in a doctoral program at the time of their application.

The CDI loan is $10,000 per year for three years and forgivable for those with full- or half-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.

Each applicant is required to have a full-time tenure/tenure track CSU faculty advisor who will provide professional mentoring and networking opportunities throughout the student’s educational experience.

Applications are available from the Chancellor’s Office website only:  www.calstate.edu/HR/CDIP.

The campus deadline for application submission is Friday, February 16, 2018 at 5:00p.m. Please bring your application to Hedy Carpenter, Director of Graduate Studies in University Hall, room 275.

Further information on the Chancellor’s Doctoral Incentive Program may be obtained from the website (www.calstate.edu/HR/CDIP) or by emailing  hedy.carpenter@csun.edu

We have scheduled 4 CDIP workshops to assist students with the application process.
