Community Leaders Association–Student Scholarships

100% of donations directly benefit students in the form of scholarships!  Community Leaders Association (CLA) Fosters community and business relationships with California Lutheran University, its faculty, and students to enhance the university’s standing in accordance with its mission, vision, and values. Members serve as ambassadors promoting university initiatives and providing networking opportunities through fundraising events. Since its inception in 1963, CLA has contributed more than $1.9 million to support Cal Lutheran’s academic programs and provide scholarships for deserving student leaders.

With each $2,500 we raise, another student receives a CLA Scholarship!

"I received a CLA student scholarship as an incoming first-year for the 2022-2023 school year. This scholarship provided me and my family additional support that allowed me to pursue a collegiate education. I am incredibly grateful to the Community Leaders Association at Cal Lutheran for allowing me to pave a better future for myself and my family. As the first person in my family to ever attend a university, I was understandably nervous about navigating an unfamiliar environment. However, CLA has provided me with incredible financial and social knowledge. Since starting my studies at CLU, I have been able to network with wonderful community leaders at the Mathews Leadership Forum, an opportunity that has given me greater direction for my academic and career goals. It is thanks to the Community Leaders Association's generosity that I have been able to immerse myself in the CLU community, and I am excited to see more CLU students receive similar support."
