Community Involvement Program (CIP)

The Community Involvement Program (CIP) is a comprehensive, need-based scholarship program for first-generation college students from the Stockton community who have demonstrated the potential for sustainable leadership, community awareness, and involvement.  The program serves the educational needs of low-income students by providing access to college along with a wide range of support to the CIP Scholars as they pursue higher education.

It was established in 1969 by a group of students, community members, faculty, and staff who wanted to provide educational opportunities to the local community and diversify the University of the Pacific campus.  More than 1,000 students have graduated from the program since its inception.

The CIP program also offers students leadership training and opportunities preparing them to return to the community as leaders and productive citizens. CIP maintains links with ethnic communities in Stockton, supporting their educational concerns by maintaining an active volunteer service program throughout the community. Students must continue their volunteer service throughout college to remain qualified for the scholarship.

Below are the details regarding the CIP Scholarship Program. Complete information can be found of the CIP Program website. Applications and Letters of Recommendation are due February 15th. CIP applicants are also required to submit a FAFSA and Cal Grant Verification Form.
