CSF-California Scholarship Federation






    CSF- California Scholarship Federation




    In order to become a member, the student must submit an application at the beginning of each semester reflecting the previous semester's grades.  To secure eligibility for California Scholastic Federation membership, a student must earn sufficient points from the pre-approved course list made available on the Redwood High School CSF application. 


    Life Membership 

    Seniors may achieve Life Membership (Sealbearer status at graduation) if they have been a member of CSF for four semesters during second semester of sophomore year through second semester of senior year. A senior must qualify for second semester of senior year even if they have four prior semesters of membership because one semester must be based on grades earned in the senior year. A senior needing one additional semester to qualify for Sealbearer may use final grades in the last semester of senior year if they qualify and complete a CSF application in May/June. Students who meet this qualification will earn the CSF Gold Seal on their diploma and wear gold cords during the graduation ceremony.  These students are also eligible to be nominated by the chapter adviser for the Seymour Memorial Awards.


    Applications and deadlines:

    Membership is neither automatic nor compulsory. Students must apply each semester they are eligible to maintain membership. Applications must be processed during the first four weeks of the semester.  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. 


    Active and Inactive Members:

    An active member not only fulfills the academic requirements for CSF membership, but also participates 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". Inactive members are still entitled to consideration for the required awards (Article VI, Section 1), but may be excluded from other optional awards and chapter privileges (e.g., field trips, banquets, chapter scholarships, etc.)
