Application Period Begins For 2013-14 Edison Scholars Program

Are you a high school senior planning to study science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields in college?

If so, you may be eligible for one of several $40,000 scholarships being offered by Edison International (EIX), parent company of Southern California Edison (SCE), which has announced the application period for its 2013-14 Edison Scholars Programs, running now through Jan. 10, 2014.

The $1.2 million program, which offers 30 scholarships valued at $40,000 each paid over four years, is for Southern California high school seniors who either live in or attend public or private high schools in SCE’s service area and will be pursuing college studies in the STEM fields. Students from low-income families are especially encouraged to apply.

“The Edison Scholars Program is an excellent opportunity for any high school student in our service area who has a 2.8 GPA or better and wants to pursue higher education in the STEM fields,” said Tammy Tumbling, director of Philanthropy and Community Investment for SCE. “If you know high school seniors who qualify and would benefit from the four-year scholarship, please pass the word along and encourage them to apply.”

Since 2006, EIX has awarded almost $4 million in scholarships to 460 students.

“At Edison International, we realize that higher education is a transformative tool that fuels the future,” Tumbling said. “As an energy company, we recognize the skills needed for our future workforce and to help advance our country.”

To apply and to get additional eligibility information, students are encouraged to go to: www.scholarsapply.org/edisonscholars. Scholarship recipients will be announced in April 2014 and recipients may also be eligible for summer internships at SCE after completing their second year of college. Dependents of Edison International employees are not eligible for the Edison Scholars Program.
