California Scholarship Federation
California Scholarship Federation is the oldest scholastic, scholarship institution in the state of California. This club 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 scholastic 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. A point system specified in 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 required membership points must come from University of California accepted course work.
Active members not only fulfill the academic requirements for CSF membership, but also participate in chapter activities at a level predetermined by the chapter adviser and officers; it is expected that such participation should exemplify the CSF motto of “Scholarship for Service.” At EDHS, to be considered an active member, students should earn three (3) service points each semester. These points may be earned through club sponsored community service, outside community service, and/or fundraisers.
Students who are active members for four out of six semesters from sophomore to senior year are rewarded with a seal on their transcript and gold cords at graduation.
