Sally Casanova Pre-Doctoral Scholarship

Program Description

The Sally Casanova Pre-Doctoral Scholars receive $3,000 in reimbursable funds which may be applied to:

1. Travel Funds for the student to visit U.S. doctoral-granting institutions and/or to attend professional meetings appropriate to the student's development.

2. Development Funds for other related activities, such as student membership in professional organizations, subscriptions to academic journals, graduate school applications and test fees, GRE preparation, and the cost of minor research materials.

3. A Summer Research Experience opportunity at a University of California campus or other U.S. major research university, fully funded by the Pre-Doctoral Program, so that the scholar can participate in doctoral-level research prior to enrolling in a Ph.D. program.
