Loans available in amounts of up to $10,000 per year up to a total of $30,000. Loans obtained through this program are repayable over a 15-year period, commencing one year after completion of or withdrawal from full-time doctoral study. If a participant applies, competes for, and is hired in a CSU instructional faculty position after completion of the doctoral degree, 20 percent of the loan will be forgiven for each year of full-time postdoctoral teaching employment in the CSU.
