This program provides student loans to a limited number of individuals pursuing full-time doctoral degrees at accredited universities throughout the United States. After participants receive their doctoral degrees and obtain a qualifying instructional position in the CSU, a portion of their loan from this program will be forgiven every year.
Established in 1987, the CSU CDIP is the largest program of its kind in the United States. As of June 2011 the program has loaned $40 million to 1,872 doctoral students enrolled in universities throughout the nation, and 1,054 of these participants have successfully earned doctoral degrees. Among participants who have earned their doctoral degrees, 600 (57 percent) have subsequently obtained employment in CSU instructional faculty positions.
Completed CDIP applications must be submitted to CTLT by 4:00 p.m. on Friday, February 1, 2013.
CDIP official selections will be announced in May 2013.
