California Scholarship Federation


The California Scholarship Federation is an organization that was set up to recognize and honor high school students for academic achievement.  At the beginning of every semester, the CSF advisor issues an announcement for membership. 


The deadline date set by the advisor is a firm deadline

that cannot be altered due to CSF by-laws. 


Requirements for membership:




  • Students need to complete the application form and attach a copy of their report card or unofficial transcript (Available in their Aeries student portal). 


  • Applications must be turned in directly to the advisor in room P39.  Do not turn it into the advisor's box; applications turned into the box are often lost.


  • Students must attain a total of ten points on the CSF scale to qualify for membership.


  • The first semester students can apply is the spring semester of their sophomore year.  In this case, the grades evaluated are from the fall semester of their sophomore year.


Sealbearer Status:



A seal-bearer is a senior who has attained life membership status. If a student is a member of CSF for four semesters* they qualify for life member status.


The seal-bearer receives two honors: 


      1) A gold seal from CSF is placed on their high school diploma


      2)  Students are recognized during the graduation processional by the gold cord

           that is draped around their neck. 


* One of the four semesters must be during the student’s senior year of high school and must include their senior grades, in other words, the student must submit their fall semester grades of their senior year to qualify for a life membership.
