Study California Scholarship
Each fall, Study California awards a scholarship to five international students planning to continue at a Study California member institution. Scholarship recipients will be chosen on the basis of academic ability, financial need, and leadership qualities. The scholarship award is $1,000 per student recipient, and is not renewable.
Applications are accepted for the current year’s scholarships from October 1-30. Scholarship winners are announced by November 30. To apply, see the instructions below.
Students who have not yet been awarded the Study California Scholarship are eligible to apply, and a student may receive the Scholarship only once. Students may apply for the scholarship each year they are an active student at a Study California member institution.
The award will be in the form of a check made payable to the student and is intended to be used for educational purposes (tuition, fees, books, supplies).
Scholarship recipients are notified by November 30, and awards will be disbursed shortly afterward after verification of full-time enrollment.
- Open to international students studying on a F1 student visa intending to continue full-time in a degree-seeking program (undergraduate or graduate) at a Study California member institution.
