Edison : Application Period Runs Through Feb. 1 for $1.2 Million Edison Scholars Program

10/02/2015 | 12:15pm US/Eastern

Release date- 01102015 - ROSEMEAD, Calif. - Edison International's $1.2 million Edison Scholars Program, which helps high school seniors realize their dreams of attending college and pursuing studies in science, technology, engineering or math announces the start of its 2015-16 application period running today through Feb. 1.

Thirty high school students in Southern California Edison's (SCE) service territory are each awarded a $40,000 scholarship paid over four years. Since 2006, Edison International, SCE's parent company, has awarded nearly $4 million in scholarships to more than 490 Edison Scholars.

'Our Edison Scholars Program helps low-income and underrepresented students pursue studies in science, technology, engineering and mathematics,' said Tammy Tumbling, SCE's director of Philanthropy and Community Investment. 'Twenty-first century careers and professional opportunities will be enhanced by young people with STEM expertise, so we strongly encourage high school seniors from SCE's service area who qualify to apply for the Edison Scholarship.'

Applicants must have a 3.0 GPA or above and either live in or attend public or private high schools in SCE's service area. High school seniors must demonstrate financial need and plan to be a full-time undergraduate student majoring in electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, civil engineering, computer engineering, industrial engineering, computer sciences/info system, environmental engineering or environmental sciences at a four-year college or university.

Students from underserved communities and ethnic minorities are especially encouraged to apply.

Scholarship recipients will be announced next April. Recipients may also be eligible for summer internships at SCE after completing their second year of college.

Edison International's support of charitable causes such as the Edison Scholars Program is funded entirely by Edison International shareholders. SCE customers' utility bill payments do not fund company donations. In addition, dependents of Edison International employees are not eligible for the Edison Scholars Program.
