The California State University (CSU) announces its California Pre-Doctoral Program for the 2018-19 academic year.

In 2018-19, the California Pre-Doctoral Program will award funds to approximately 70 juniors, seniors, and graduate students in the CSU. These funds are designed to enable these students to explore and prepare to succeed in doctoral programs in their chosen field of study. Awards are based on competitive review of student applications and given to current upper-division or graduate students who, in the judgment of the review panel, demonstrate academic excellence while having experienced economic or educational disadvantage, and who are committed to a career in teaching or research at the university level.

Students who are chosen for this prestigious award are designated Sally Casanova Pre-Doctoral Scholars as a tribute to Dr. Sally Casanova, for whom the scholarship is named.
