Catalino Tapia Scholarship Foundation

CTSF is a nonprofit organization that provides scholarships and resources to college students in San Francisco, Alameda, San Mateo, and Santa Clara counties.

About CTSF

We strongly believe that students displaying determination and dedication to obtain a college degree should be given the opportunity to pursue their college education and career goals despite their ethnicity, cultural background, and immigrant status. Our programs break systematic barriers and socioeconomic disparity by fostering college education in the community.

"I want to say THANK YOU because I have gotten to this point in my academic and professional journey..."
