The California Student Aid Commission serves as a vital resource for the future success of all students. We are committed to listening, giving students a voice and working to make education beyond high school financially accessible for all Californians.
Scholarships are gifts. They don't need to be repaid. There are thousands of them, offered by schools, employers, individuals, private companies, nonprofits, communities, religious groups, and professional and social organizations.
