CJSF Membership

What is CJSF?
Why should I join?

California Junior Scholarship Federation or CJSF is a statewide organization whose purpose is to foster high standards of scholarship, service, and citizenship in students in grades seven and eight.

CJSF Membership is based on scholarship and citizenship. Membership is granted for the semester following the one in which the qualifying grades were earned. A student must apply for membership each semester they are eligible.
