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

The California Scholarship Federation, Inc. is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to recognize and encourage academic achievement and community service among middle and high school students in California. Eligible students become members by submitting applications based on their report card grades, and membership is for one semester.


Qualification is based on grades and courses completed each semester in high school, 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 Ms. Steele's room, 412. 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.
