California Scholarship Federation

The California Scholarship Federation (CSF) started in 1921 by Charles F. Seymour, seeks to recognize students living in the state of California who possess high standards in academic scholarship, community service and citizenship.
Members of the California Scholarship Federation are eligible for a variety of tuition scholarships available at universities across the state and in select colleges nationwide. Regional subcommittees nominate several members as Life Members based upon character, leadership abilities and volunteer service. Fifty of these students receive $1,500 each, and five of these (one from each region of California) are awarded an additional $1000 toward their college tuition.
Approximately one thousand chapters are located in various secondary schools across the state. The organization continues to promote the education of academically motivated students, encouraging them to get involved in their communities through volunteer service.
CSF also has a subdivision called the California Junior Scholarship Federation which awards scholarships to middle school students.
