PG&E Accepting Applications For 2013 College Scholarships













SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) announced today that its Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are now accepting applications from aspiring and continuing college students for financial assistance through the ERGs' scholarship funds. At least 100 students will receive $1,000 to $5,000 each for exemplary scholastic achievement and community leadership.

All college-bound students living within PG&E's Northern and Central California service area are eligible to apply. In 2012, the utility's ERGs awarded $302,000 in scholarships to help 163 students with their college expenses.

"Recognizing and supporting young people who are dedicated students and contributing to their communities is a privilege for PG&E," said Bill Harper, PG&E's vice president of talent management and chief diversity officer. "We are delighted that our ERG scholarships have given young people in our communities a chance to receive support to help them afford a college education."

To apply for a scholarship, students need to submit a basic and supplemental application. Complete scholarship information, including award criteria and applications, is posted on the PG&E scholarship website at www.pge.com/about/community/scholarships/.

Completed applications must be uploaded, postmarked or e-mailed to PG&E by February 1, 2013.

PG&E's ERGs have awarded scholarships to deserving students for more than 20 years. The funds are collected from PG&E employee contributions, ERG fundraising events, and from PG&E's corporate charitable giving program.

Diversity and inclusion have long been hallmarks of PG&E's heritage. The utility currently has 10 ERGs, which contribute to the personal and professional development of thousands of employees and provide vital opportunities to engage employees in service to diverse communities. They are Pride Network, Women's Network, Samahan, InspirAsian, Black Employees Association, Latino, Access Network, Legacy, Nu NRG and Veterans.
