Empowering Students to Achieve, Succeed, and Prosper

The Mission Grad Application is Closed for Spring 2024 as all funds have been exhausted.

Mission Graduation Scholarship is now available to all graduating students including our DACA and Undocumented population.

Scholarship Background

The Mission Graduation Scholarship was created for students in their final graduating semester at CSN. The scholarship is designated to alleviate the financial stresses that may be felt as students prepare to graduate.


Funding is limited and will be awarded on a first-come/first-serve basis. Applications should be submitted at the beginning of the graduating semester to allow time for processing. Once funds are exhausted, no additional applications will be considered. Due to the limitation of funds, we cannot award this scholarship retroactively for previous semesters. CSN & NSC high school students are not eligible to apply for this scholarship.

Funding is limited to only classes leading towards the completion of the graduating degree and approved by the counselor. Students using a substitution waiver in the funded semester must have it noted on the Signed Degree Sheet for eligibility.
