CJSF - California Junior Scholarship Federation

What is CJSF?

The purpose of the California Junior Scholarship Federation, a state-wide organization of over 600 chapters, is to foster high standards of scholarship, service, and citizenship among California's public and private junior high and middle schools students. 


What are the benefits of CJSF membership? 

CJSF prepares the student for high school and beyond. Membership also brings with it the opportunity to participate in activities which benefit the school, the community and the student. Getting involved in extracurricular activities, e.g. band, CJSF, Leadership, yearbook, drama or even volunteering, helps students discover what their real interests are and where they are heading. 


What do I need to turn in to join CJSF? 

  • Students need to earn a minimum of 10 points on a semester report card in 4 core academic courses (math, language arts, science, and social science) and 1 elective course to be eligible. 
    • Report card grades: A = 3 points, B = 1 points, no points for grades C and below 
    • D or F in any course disqualifies a student from semester membership 
    • $10.00 membership dues (Club dues support CJSF events and program essentials)



CCMS CA Junior Scholarship Federation (CJSF) is accepting applications. Current 7th and 8th grade students that meet eligibility requirements are encouraged to apply. Deadline to submit applications is Thursday, February 1. (Please have your Fall 2023 Report Card ready!) 


An informational meeting for NEW and CONTINUING members will be held on Thursday, January 25 at 7pm.
