External Scholarship Opportunities (Financial Aid Highlights)
Local, regional, and national organizations often ask that we post an announcement for CSUB students. These scholarships required separate applications, and the recipients are determined by the organization independent of CSUB. These Financial Aid Highlights are provided by the Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships for the benefit of prospective and continuing CSUB students and parents, high school and community college counselors, faculty, and staff. Past issues are indexed and archived on this page. Additional information regarding any given topic may be obtained by calling the office at (661) 654-3016.
