CSF (California Scholarship federation is an organization that recognizes the high academic achievement of the students in it while providing an opportunity to do community service.  If a student is a member for 4 out of their last 6 semesters of high school, (Freshman grades do not count, and at least 1 semester must be earned with senior grades), then they graduate as a Sealbearer, (they get the CSF gold pin, a gold tassel, the honors chord or stole depending on the level of their participation in the club, it is noted on their transcript as well that they are a Sealbearer.)

As CSF is a statewide organization, colleges know what CSF is, along with the qualifications needed to be a member.  So, being a member looks good on college applications.  Becoming a CSF Sealbearer looks even better.

Please consider applying. Deadline to submit is February 12 @ 3:30pm. Click on the link below to apply:
