Each year, Edison International, the parent company of Southern California Edison, awards $40,000 scholarships, paid over four years, to 30 high school students who plan to major in designated STEM (Science, Technology Engineering and Math) fields at a four-year accredited U.S. college or university. “These future leaders have the opportunity to change lives, communities and perhaps even the world,” said Pedro Pizarro, president and CEO of Edison International. High school seniors seeking to pursue a future in STEM fields are encouraged to apply for these scholarships between now and December 16, 2019. Applicants must live in SCE’s service area and plan to be a full-time undergraduate student majoring in a STEM field. Eligible students must also be a high school senior, have at least a cumulative 3.0 GPA and demonstrate financial need—students from underserved communities and ethnic minorities are encouraged to apply. “We are proud to help talented students realize their academic dreams and support these important STEM programs,” Pizarro stressed. Since 2006, Edison International has awarded an estimated $9.9 million in scholarships to 640 students through the Edison Scholars Program. Scholarship applications are now being accepted through Dec. 16. To apply and obtain additional eligibility information, visit: edisonscholars.com. The scholarship recipients—who will be announced next spring—may also be eligible for summer internships at SCE after completing their second year of college. Dependents of Edison International and SCE employees and retirees are not eligible for the Edison Scholars Program.
