California Scholarship Federation (CSF)

    The California Scholarship Federation (CSF) emphasizes high standards of scholarship and community service for California high school students. Founded in 1921, the California Scholarship Federation is the oldest scholarship institution in the state of California.

    CSF Membership is based on scholarship and is gained after qualifying grades are earned each semester. In order to become a member, the student must submit an application each semester the student is eligible. A point system specified in the CSF State By-Laws establishes the membership requirements.  To secure eligibility for CSF membership, a student must earn sufficient points from pre-approved course lists.  The majority of the required membership points must come from University of California accepted course work.  Students must also participate in four community service events with one being during their senior year to be eligible for Life Membership.  There are many local community service projects arranged through CSF.

    Life Membership (Sealbearer) is achieved by qualifying four or more semesters in the last three years of high school, (one semester must be in your senior year) and earns the CSF Gold Seal on diplomas and transcripts. Students must be active with CSF and participate in four community service projects during the high school years, with one being during senior year. These students graduate in white robes and are also eligible to be nominated by the chapter adviser for the Seymour Memorial Awards.

    More detailed information on membership can be found in the CSF Handbook.
