High school seniors planning to pursue college studies in science, technology, engineering or math (STEM) can apply for the 2014-15 Edison Scholars Program. Feb. 1 is the deadline to submit an application to Edison International.
Eligible students can apply for one of 30 scholarships valued at $40,000 each and paid over four years. Applicants must have a 2.8 GPA or better and either live in or attend public or private high schools in the Southern California Edison service area. Students from low-income families and underserved communities are encouraged to apply.
To apply and to get additional eligibility information, students are encouraged to go to: www.scholarsapply.org/edisonscholars. Applications must be received by 11:59 p.m., Feb. 1.
Scholarship recipients will be announced in April and they may also be eligible for summer internships at SCE after completing their second year of college. Since 2006, Edison International has awarded nearly $4 million in scholarships. Dependents of Edison International employees are not eligible for the Edison Scholars Program.
