The CSU offers doctoral programs in education, nursing and physical therapy. If you've submitted a
Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or
California Dream Act (CADA) application and you're enrolled in a doctoral program at a CSU campus, you'll automatically be considered for a grant in your program. If you're eligible for the grant, your campus will contact you to let you know.
Sixteen campuses offer students the chance to earn an Ed.D. or Ph.D. in education, many with a special focus on educational leadership.
