Community Involvement Program (CIP)

The Community Involvement Program (CIP) is a comprehensive need-based scholarship and retention 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 program includes a co-curricular experience with an emphasis on leadership development and community service. CIP Scholars have access to comprehensive retention services, including tutoring, peer mentoring, as well as academic enrichment. These students also have opportunities to explore and enhance career success by networking and engaging with CIP alumni.

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 January 15th.
