PhD in Education student Sharin Jacob has been named a 2019 California State University Doctoral Incentive Program (CDIP) Scholar.
CDIP provides financial support, mentorship, and professional development opportunities from the CSU’s Chancellor’s Office for promising doctoral students who are interested in becoming faculty at a California State University. A major feature of CDIP is the loan forgiveness program. For each year of full-time teaching at a CSU campus, a recipient will have one-fifth of the loan principal and interest cancelled.
Sharin is a third year doctoral student specializing in Language, Literacy, and Technology. Her research interests include literacy and technology, computer assisted language learning, second language acquisition, academic language and literacy, stem education, and sociolinguistics. She is advised by Professor Mark Warschauer.
