Alumni- Ph.D. Students

California PATH employed Graduate students as researchers on many of their projects. From July 2006 until June 2018, 76 Ph.D. students were sponsored by California PATH research projects. Most projects have duration of a year, although many can be executed over two or three years. As a consequence, an individual studying for a Ph.D. could be involved in as many as 4 different projects. More than half of our Ph.D. students, in fact, had their dissertation supported by a sponsor.
