California Scholarship Federation (CSF) emphasizes high standards of service, scholarship, and citizenship for California high school students. CSF encourages service to the school and community while fostering pride in scholastic achievement. Membership in CSF is by semester and is based upon academic standing and service to school and/or community. In order to become a member, the student must submit an application each semester the student is eligible. A point system specified in the CSF State By-Laws establishes the membership requirements. To secure eligibility for CSF membership, a student must earn sufficient points from pre-approved course lists. The majority of the required membership points must come from University of California accepted course work. Life Membership (Sealbearer status) is achieved by qualifying for chapter membership for four or more semesters in the last three years of high school (and must include one semester of membership based on senior year grades), and earns the CSF gold seal on diplomas. CSF Life Member students who also complete all required service are given a gold cord to wear at graduation.
