Public utility holding company Edison International, the parent company of Southern California Edison (SCE), is accepting applications for its 2020 Edison Scholars Program.
Through the program, scholarships of $40,000, paid over four years, will be awarded to thirty high school students who plan to major in a designated STEM field at a four-year accredited U.S. college or university. (Click here for a list of eligible STEM majors.)
To be eligible, applicants must be a high school senior in SCE’s service area who plans to be a full-time undergrad majoring in a STEM field, have at least a cumulative 3.0 GPA, and be able to demonstrate financial need. Students from underserved communities and ethnic minorities are encouraged to apply. Dependents of Edison International and SCE employees and retirees are not eligible for the program.
Applications must be received by December 16. Scholarship recipients will be announced in the spring of 2020 and may be eligible for summer internships at SCE after completing their second year of college.
