SF STATE NEWS -- When Francesca Colonnese wants insights into Renaissance poetry, which she’s studying as she works toward an M.A. in English Language and Literature at San Francisco State University, she pores over old manuscripts in the Sutro Library. But when she needed a clearer picture of her own future, she turned elsewhere: to the California Pre-Doctoral Program, an initiative that supports the doctoral ambitions of students at the 23 California State University (CSU) campuses.

“Participating in the Pre-Doctoral Program made all the difference, both in applying for doctoral programs and preparing me for what the graduate school world would look like,” Colonnese said.
