To apply to any of the CSUB scholarships listed below, click the gold “Sign In” button on this page to begin. You must have a CSUB ID number to be able to sign in and begin your scholarship application.

Once you complete your General Application, the system will automatch it with all scholarships in which you meet the criteria. Meeting the qualification criteria means you will be entered into the pool of applicants for a particular scholarship. It does not guarantee you will receive a scholarship.

The system will also provide a drop down menu of opportunities for you to review, that include:
- Recommended – These are scholarship currently open that may be recommended for you to review because you appear to meet the basic criteria. Typically these scholarships have additional questions or criteria that you must meet to apply.
- Ours – Lists all CSUB Scholarships, excluding external scholarships.
- External – These scholarships are posted for non-CSUB scholarship organizations. They have their own application and deadlines. For more information, click on their hyperlink.

Our priority application period is January 1st to March 2nd for the upcoming academic year. However, students may still apply after this date, as some scholarships are awarded later in the year.

If you have any questions about this website, please contact our Scholarship Coordinator, Ms. Tanae McCall, at (661) 654-2592.
