SPRING 2014 Application and NEW Application Process

The Spring Application for 2014 is attached in the locker below.

Please read the instructions carefully before filling out the application.

Incorrect and/or incomplete applications may disqualify your acceptance into CSF!!! 

NEW APPLICATION PROCESS

You must include a SIGNED (by your guidance counselor) print out of your Fall 2013 grades. Semester grades and citizenship grades will be checked. PRINT OUT A COPY OF YOUR FALL 2013 SEMESTER GRADES AND CITIZENSHIP GRADES FROM YOUR STUDENT PORTAL. BRING THAT PRINTOUT TO YOUR GUIDANCE COUNSELOR WHO WILL SIGN IT TO VERIFY ITS AUTHENTICITY. APPLICATIONS WITHOUT A SIGNED PRINTOUT OF YOUR GRADES WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.

DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE TO GET YOUR GRADES VERIFIED. As you can imagine, many students will be scrambling at the last minute to get their fall grades signed off by their guidance counselor. You may have to wait in LONG lines to get to see your counselor if you wait until the last day. Many students were DENIED membership last semester because they simply waited TOO long to start the process. DON'T LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU! 

If you have any questions, please e mail Mrs. Harrington at cpharrington@capousd.org or stop by room H-12.

Welcome to CSF

Founded in 1921, the California Scholarship Federation is the oldest scholastic, scholarship institution in the state of California. CSF emphasizes high standards of scholarship, and community service for California high school students. CSF encourages service to the school and the community while fostering pride in academic achievement.

CSF Membership is based on scholarship and is gained after qualifying grades are earned each semester. 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) is achieved by qualifying four or more semesters in the last three years of high school, and earns the CSF Gold Seal on diplomas and transcripts. One of the semesters must be from grades earned during the senior year.

WHAT HAPPENS IF A STUDENT MISSES THE APPLICATION DEADLINE?

Membership is neither automatic nor compulsory. The By-Laws (Article IV, Section 2) and every chapter's mandatory Standing Rules (Article III, Section 3) require that the eligible student actually apply for membership, and retroactive membership (after the deadline) is prohibited. However, certain extreme circumstances may justify an exception to this rule; these may include: A lengthy absence from school during the application period; an incomplete grade completed (or a previously recorded grade changed) after the deadline, which qualifies a previously ineligible student. Excuses such as forgetting or not bothering to apply, inability to find one's report card in a timely fashion, failing to heed school announcements about the application period, absence on the last day of the application period, and other mundane excuses are not acceptable.
