CALIFORNIA SCHOLARSHIP FEDERATION
Membership in the California Scholarship Federation (CSF) is based on academic achievement and the previous semester’s grades in particular required courses. A list of the courses is available from Mrs. Peterson in S-14. Students become eligible in the second semester of their freshman year. Four semesters of membership, including one in the senior year, earn students a gold cord at graduation. Each student who joins CSF is required to complete five hours of community service through opportunities provided by the club or pre-approved by Mrs. Peterson or the CSF board. These hours should be separate from service hours accrued for other clubs on campus, scouts or church groups, etc. There is a $15 membership fee per semester that goes toward a small scholarships awarded in senior year. If you have any questions, please feel free to stop by S-14 to ask Mrs. Peterson.
