Basis for Funding
  • Awards are generally based on scholasticachievement and financial need. All students are encouraged to apply for as many scholarships as possible, to lessen their need for loans or part time work to attend school.
  • Some awards are based on Distinct Qualifications: qualities like leadership, community service, hardship, and academic achievement in addition to financial need.
fafsa for federal funds
FAFSA for Federal Funds
  • In order to receive student financial aid, students need to fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) every school year.
  • The process is all done on-line

csu doctoral incentive program
CSU Doctoral Incentive Program
  • Lends participants who are full-time doctoral students up to $10,000 annually to a limit of $30,000 over a five-year period. The recipients may enroll in any approved doctoral program, at an accredited university in the United States or abroad.
  • After completion of the doctoral degree, a DIP participant is extended a 12-month grace period before loan repayments begin. If the participant obtains a full-time instructional faculty position in the CSU, the loan principal and interest are "forgiven" at the rate of 20% for each year of service. After five years of full time faculty service, the entire loan amount can be forgiven.

what is missing
What is Missing?
  • Prior opportunities are wonderful, but require advanced knowledge of need, considerable amounts of paperwork, and a long lag period
  • Faculty often have excellent students, who would benefit from giving a presentation at a conference, local or national
  • Development of a mechanism for funding by students for students that sets criteria, includes evaluation, and is promoted by the faculty would fill a void and promote advanced learning
how can asi help examples
How Can ASI Help? Examples
  • Support Instructionally Related Activities (as at CSU Fresno)
  • Provide ASI Supported Scholarships (as at CSU Long Beach)
  • Initiate a theme-based program that accomplishes our mission (e.g., community service, sustainability), and is supported by ASI funds (as at CSU Chico with the AS Sustainability Fund)
in conclusion
In Conclusion…..
  • We are in this together, working towards the same goals.
  • Helping students find ways to graduate smarter, easier, and sooner helps us, our students, and our community.
