The Chancellor’s Doctoral Incentive Program (CDIP)

The goal of the California State University Chancellor's Doctoral Incentive Program (CDIP) is to increase the number of faculty with the qualifications, motivation, and skills needed to teach the diverse students of the CSU.

CDIP prepares promising doctoral students for CSU faculty positions by providing financial support, mentorship by CSU faculty and professional development and grant resources. It is the largest program of its kind in the U.S.

Congratulations to the new CDIP Fellows

We are happy to announce the incoming cohort of CDIP Fellows for 2024-25. Congratulations to the fellows and the CSU Faculty Mentors who support doctoral students across the nation! Together we are diversifying the landscape of higher education and preparing doctoral students to work with the diverse student body in the CSU.
