    What is CSF?
    The California Scholarship Federation (CSF) emphasizes high academic standards, community service, and citizenship for California high school students. Founded in 1921, and with over 1600 chapters, the California Scholarship Federation is the oldest scholarship institution in the state of California. 

    Membership Information
    CSF Membership is based solely on academics and is held during the semester following when the qualifying grades were earned and is for one semester only. A point system specified in the CSF State By-Laws establishes membership requirements, and the student must earn sufficient points from pre-approved course lists. In order to become a member, the student must submit an application each semester the student is eligible.
