Our Opportunities

Welcome to the California State University, Bakersfield (CSUB) Scholarship website!

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 this General Scholarship 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.

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. Kim Wellman, at (661) 654-3270.
