BeachScholarships

Once students are admitted into the university or taking courses at LBSU, they may begin to apply for campus scholarships during the application seasons. In the meantime, since most scholarship applications require current enrollment, we recommend utilizing the BeachScholarships external scholarship database to search for outside opportunities advertised by organizations and businesses who award scholarships to all college students: BeachScholarships External Scholarships.

President's Scholars Program

The President’s Scholarships are the most prestigious merit-based scholarships awarded by CSULB. President’s Scholarship awardees are selected from a competitive high-achieving pool of students admitted to the University Honors Program (UHP). They receive not only financial support but also valuable benefits such as priority registration, small classes, individualized/proactive academic advising, and the opportunity to participate in Honors House, the on-campus residential honors community. As members of the Honors program, President’s Scholarship recipients will be a part of a small, nurturing group of diversely talented students who are mentored by stellar faculty and dedicated staff in a family-like atmosphere. Please view the University Honors Program for more information.
