It is time to apply for CSF !!!!

What is CSF?

The California Scholarship Federation (CSF) emphasizes high standards of scholarship and community service for California high school students. Founded in 1921, the California Scholarship Federation is the oldest scholarship institution in the state of California. Students must fill out and submit an application during enrollment period only. Late applications are not accepted and there is no retroactive membership. Applications must be submitted to CSF Advisor Ms. Stemler by the deadline.

Who can apply?

10th, 11th and 12th Graders can now apply using grades from LAST SEMESTER (Fall, 2015). 

Students must reapply each semester, with each new set of grades.

10th graders may apply this February (2016) with grades from last semester (Fall 2015).

What is required to be a member?

Students need a total of ten (10) points based on the lists of courses offered at their school. A minimum of seven (7) of the ten points must be from Lists I and II courses, with four (4) of these points from List I. The additional three points may be from List III. Students may use up to five courses (25 credits) to apply for membership. However, a D or an F in any subject, even if not being used for CSF points, disqualifies the student for that semester. Good citizenship is also a membership requirement.

Why should I apply?

Qualifying for CSF allows students to apply for special awards and scholarships.

CSF seniors are able to wear a special sash and sit in the front row during the high school commencement ceremony in June. 

CSF is a wonderful addition to a student's resume and college applications.

CSF is an honor, and is only awarded to students with exemplary performance in high school academics.

 

How do I do it?

**Download the attached form and return it to Ms. Stemler in the Counseling Office.

**You can also pick up an application and CSF approved course list at the Counseling Office.

**Remember you will need to attach a copy of your transcript to the application.

**Any questions, email jstemler@nmusd.us or stop by Ms. Stemler's Office
