Now through Dec. 1, high school seniors with a passion for science, technology, engineering or math (STEM) can apply for Edison International’s $1.2 million scholarship program that awards $40,000 — paid over four years — to each of as many as 30 students seeking to make a difference in the world.
In 2017, four Riverside County students were awarded scholarships.
Applicants must meet all of the following criteria:
• Be a high school senior with a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale or the equivalent.
• Live in Southern California Edison’s service territory.
• Plan to attend a full-time undergraduate course of study at an accredited four-year college or university in the U.S. for the 2018-19 academic year.
• Plan to enroll in an eligible major in computer and information services, engineering, engineering technology, management information systems, mathematics, natural resources and conservation, or physical sciences.
• Demonstrate financial need.
Dependents of Edison International and SCE employees or retirees are not eligible for the Edison Scholars Program.
Up to 30 awards of $10,000 per year, totaling $40,000 over four years, will be granted.
Awards are renewable for up to three more years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first. Renewal is contingent upon satisfactory academic performance and continued full-time enrollment in one of the designated fields of study at a four-year college and continuation of the program by Edison International.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
