Interested in pursuing a doctorate?
The CSU Pre-Doctoral Program each year identifies Sally Casanova Scholars, prospective graduate students from educationally disadvantaged backgrounds who with a faculty mentor and financial assistance prepare for graduate school during their junior or senior year. Students who are already in Master degree programs also qualify for this program.
The program seeks to provide loans to doctoral students who are interested in applying and competing for CSU instructional faculty positions after completion of the doctoral degree. Additionally, a portion of their loan from this program will be forgiven every year of employment in a qualifying position.
For more information about these doctoral programs, please contact:
