To apply to CDIP, you'll need to provide a completed application form, a current resume or CV, a qualification and motivation statement, a collaborative plan of support written with your CSU faculty mentor, and two letters of recommendation.


Each applicant applies to the campus where the CSU faculty mentor is employed. Each CSU campus establishes its own deadline. Therefore, it's required that the applicant contact a campus coordinator to review the application. If the applicant needs help identifying a CSU faculty mentor, they should contact the CDIP Office at cdip@calstate.edu.
