Through our $1.2 million Edison Scholars Program, we’re helping high school seniors with a passion for science, technology, engineering or math (STEM) achieve their academic goals.
Edison Scholars is designed to help minority, low-income and under-represented students in our service area pay for college studies in STEM fields, helping them develop skills and knowledge they need to thrive in the workforce of the future.
Since 2006, Edison International has helped 580 students dream big and experience a successful college career by giving out nearly $7.7 million in scholarships.
Edison Scholars Program Details:
The $1.2 million program awards $40,000 scholarships, paid over four years, to 30 high school seniors who either live in, or attend public or private high school, in SCE’s service area or attend an eligible high school surrounding SCE’s San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station.
Applicants must have at least a cumulative 3.0 GPA, show financial need, and plan to pursue studies in the STEM fields at a four-year accredited college or university. Students from underserved communities and ethnic minorities are encouraged to apply.
In 2017, there were 1,226 applicants for the Edison Scholars program. Edison Scholars is funded by shareholder dollars, not rate payer dollars.
