Are you considering pursuing a Ph.D. after completing your bachelor’s degree? The CSU funds three programs, described below. 

The Graduate Equity Fellowship Program seeks to increase the diversity of students completing graduate degree programs at Cal State East Bay, encourages continuation towards doctoral programs, and promotes consideration of university faculty careers.  Applicants must be admitted to a state-supported CSUEB Master's program as a classified or conditionally classified student, have an undergraduate GPA of 2.7 or greater, a graduate GPA of 3.25 or greater, show financial need, and enroll in 8 units or more per semester during academic year 2021-2022.  Additional requirements apply.  Successful applicants receive grants ranging from $500 up to $2000 per year.  The application deadline is May 1st, 2021.

Students selected for the California Pre-Doctoral Program receive $3,000 to explore and prepare to succeed in doctoral studies through faculty mentoring, scholarly research opportunities, travel to visit doctoral-granting institutions, membership in professional associations, and attendance at professional conferences, and also funds a summer research experience at a doctoral-granting institution. Undergraduates and graduate students are eligible to apply. However, you must be enrolled at CSUEB in Spring 2021, and also be enrolled for at least one semester of the academic year 2021-2022.  The application deadline is February 1st, 2021.

The Chancellor’s Doctoral Incentive Program (CDIP) provides financial assistance in the form of a student loan to a limited number of individuals pursuing doctoral degrees. The program seeks to provide loans of up to $30,000 to doctoral students who are interested in applying and competing for CSU instructional faculty positions after completion of the doctoral degree. The loans are forgivable for students who return to teach in the CSU after receiving their doctoral degree.  The application deadline is February 1st, 2021.

All three programs are designed to increase the diversity of persons qualified to fill instructional faculty positions in the CSU.  To learn more, please attend one of our information sessions, which will be held virtually via Zoom on:

Thursday, November 5th from 12:15-1:45 PM  (https://csueb.zoom.us/j/88477420732?pwd=UUI5NUZiek41eXRZQ1FTOWtrRmdWQT09)
