A brief description of the institution’s programs that help increase the diversity of higher education faculty :

The California Pre-Doctoral Program is designed to increase the pool of potential faculty by supporting the doctoral aspirations of CSU students who have experienced economic and educational disadvantages. With the aid of a faculty sponsor, these scholars are exposed to unique opportunities to explore and help prepare them to succeed in doctoral programs. The program provides travel funds to visit doctorate-granting institutions, options for summer research internships, and funds for other related activities.

The Chancellor's Doctoral Incentive Program (CDIP) provides student loans for pursuing full-time PhD degrees at universities throughout the United States. After participants receive their PhD degrees and obtain a qualifying teaching position in the CSU system, a portion of the loan from this program will be forgiven each year.

Funded by the CSU, the Graduate Equity Program seeks to increase the diversity of students completing graduate degree programs, encourage further study in doctoral programs and promote consideration of university faculty careers. It provides fellowships to economically disadvantaged CSUF students who have overcome educational disadvantages or hardships. The fellowships are intended to minimize students' debt burden, allowing them to complete their program more quickly and commence doctoral study.

More information on the above programs can be found at: http://www.fullerton.edu/graduate/scholarships.html#cpdp

Several of CSUF’s academic departments hold student conferences or symposiums each year. Students present their research performed under the supervision of faculty mentors. Many of the students participate in such conferences in preparation for Ph.D. studies. In addition, many of the departments are associated with or offer student organizations, honor societies, mentoring courses, and student assistantships in which students are trained in leadership roles, mentoring other students, and/or professional academic endeavors appropriate for pursuing Ph.D. studies.
