If awarded, students attending a 4-year college/university for fall 2015 will receive a $2,000 scholarship. If student is unable to attend the 4-year college/university and instead attends a 2-year community college, the award amount will be reduced to $1,000.    

In order for the application to be considered all of the items in the scholarship packet must be submitted to the Cal-SOAP representative or college counselor at your High School, Cal-SOAP representative at the Community College Transfer Center or directly to the Cal-SOAP office located on the campus of California State University, Los Angeles by 4:00pm on the due date. (No email or faxes of the application packet will be accepted and applications that are mailed and not received in the office by the above stated time and date will not be considered).

All required documents must be turned in as a complete packet (use one staple on the top left-hand corner to submit the documents in the order in the application). Incomplete applications will automatically be disqualified.  All application requirements are subject to verification. If you have any questions regarding the scholarship, please contact the Cal-SOAP representative or college counselor at your high school, Cal-SOAP representative at the community college, or contact the Cal-SOAP office at (323) 343-3180 (ask to speak with Samantha Paz).  Awardees will only be notified by email.

Note: Once recipients have been selected and conditionally offered an award, they will be required to submit additional forms that will be requested in the award letter. Failure to submit all required forms will result in rescission of the scholarship award. Funds will be disbursed directly to the Financial Aid Office/Scholarship Office of the college or university the student attends.  Students must attend an accredited degree-granting 2 or 4 year institution (community college or four year university/college) to receive the scholarship. If a student is attending a community college, s/he must be in an Associate’s degree or transfer program.

Good Luck!
