The California Pre-Doctoral Program is designed to increase the pool of potential CSU faculty by supporting the doctoral aspirations of CSU students who have experienced economic and educational disadvantages. Students are selected by a committee of faculty from the California State University and the University of California.

Each scholar works closely with a CSU faculty sponsor to develop an overall plan leading to enrollment in a doctoral program. Each plan is tailored to the individual career and educational goals of the student. The program places a special emphasis on increasing the number of CSU students who enter doctoral programs at a University of California campus.
