Chancellor’s Doctoral Incentive Program Applications 2009-2010

Loans Available to Promising Doctoral Students The purpose of this program is to increase the number of promising full-time doctoral students (lecturers are eligible and encouraged to apply) who are interested in applying and competing for future instructional faculty positions at any one of our 23 CSU campuses. The program seeks to accomplish this goal by providing financial aid in the form of loans to doctoral students with the motivation, skills, and experience needed to teach the diverse student body of the CSU. · Loans of up to $10,000 per year up to a total of $30,000 within a 5 year period. · Loans obtained through the program are repayable over a 15-year period, commencing one year after completion of, or withdrawal from, full-time doctoral study. · If a participant applies, competes for, and is hired in a CSU instructional faculty position after completion of the doctoral degree, 20 percent of the loan will be forgiven for each year of full-time postdoctoral teaching employment in the CSU. · Part-time teaching in the CSU may also be considered for partial loan forgiveness, if the participant teaches at least half-time and has successfully completed the doctorate degree. · This program requires a CSU faculty mentor sponsor the student. · New or continuing students who will be in doctoral programs at accredited universities anywhere in the United States during the 2010/2011 academic year may apply. · CDIP is designed as a recruitment incentive program open to all graduate students at accredited institutions who are not probationary or tenured faculty members in the CSU. · Lecturers are eligible and encouraged to apply. The deadline for SDSU applications is February 26, 2010. All details of this loan program as well as an application request can be found at For more information regarding this program please contact
