SCHOLARSHIPS

Alliant Educational Foundation's Sponsored Scholarships Program

Alliant Educational Foundation manages a wide variety of scholarship opportunities for students at Alliant International University and other institutions of higher education. The foundation also hosts a general fund that assists us with the expenses related to our daily operations as we support our public service mission. Please consider making a gift or donation to one of our funds to support education, learning and student success.

Alliant International University was founded in 2001 through the combination of United States International University (USIU) and Alliant University/California School of Professional Psychology (CSPP). San Francisco Law School (SFLS) joined Alliant in 2010.

These three institutions had a long history before joining forces. San Francisco Law School was founded in 1909 and has been devoted to educating attorneys who embody the highest skills of the legal profession and are committed to the ethical practice of the profession. USIU originated in 1924 as the Balboa School of Law, becoming California Western University in 1952, and finally USIU in 1968. CSPP was founded in 1969 under the auspices of the California Psychological Association.

The California School of Professional Psychology (CSPP) at Alliant International University has been recognized nationally and internationally for its superior commitment to training multiculturally competent mental health professionals. CSPP leads the way in building a diverse, and highly competent behavioral and mental health workforce for the new millennium.

CSPP was one of the first, and is still the largest, school of professional psychology in the United States. Its founding marked the emergence of clinical psychology as a professional practice oriented discipline, taking its place alongside research psychology as it was taught in California’s major universities. Since CSPP’s founding in 1969, practitioners of clinical psychology, a large number of them CSPP graduates, have driven a growing awareness that behavioral science comprises a vital part of the national health care agenda.

CSPP strives to improve the quality of life by addressing major contemporary issues in a problem-solving way, fostering respect for human diversity in a multicultural society, and combating discrimination in all of its forms. In all of its activities, CSPP is committed to exhibiting the highest professional and ethical standards, addressing the needs of both individuals and organizations and serving those who are underserved.
