LCC California Scholarship Federation

Parents and guardians, please have your child complete their own application. This is a great opportunity for them to have practice reading instructions and filling out a form- a skill that will be extremely important in life. By all means, check it afterward, but do not deprive them of this learning opportunity.


California Scholarship Federation, CSF, recognizes California students who possess high standards in academic scholarship, community service and citizenship. Qualification is based on grades and courses completed each semester, and you may apply beginning spring of freshman year.

To gain CSF Seal Bearer Status (also known as a Life Member) you must apply and qualify every semester from spring of sophomore year through fall of senior year. CSF membership can be included in your college applications to indicate your scholastic achievements. You must re-qualify and re-apply every semester.

To become a member please fill out an application to determine if you qualify and return it to Room 303 (Francois) or 740 (Stapko) or to the box in the counseling office. Fall Applications are accepted from October 1-31 (using the previous Spring semester grades). Spring Applications will be accepted from March 1- March 31 (using the previous Fall semester grades). Late applications will not be accepted.

Returning members please remember you MUST have 4 consecutive semesters in CSF to be a seal bearer. One of those semesters must occur in fall of your senior year.
