College Scholarships for Students in Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM)

Through our signature scholarship program, Edison Scholars, we have awarded nearly $5.3 million in scholarships to 520 students since 2006. Last year, we awarded $1.2 million in scholarships to 30 high school seniors who plan to major in STEM fields: engineering (electrical, mechanical, civil, computer, industrial, or environmental); computer science / information systems; or environmental sciences. Each scholarship is valued at $40,000 and is payable over four years.

Higher education can transform lives. We're committed to helping young people build better lives—and bright futures—through careers in STEM fields.

About Edison Scholars

Edison Scholars is designed to help minority, low-income and under-represented students in Southern California pay for college studies in STEM fields, helping them develop skills and knowledge they need to thrive in the workforce of the future. As Edison Scholars, the students may also be eligible for summer internships at Edison and can get paired with professionals at our companies for mentoring and guidance throughout the students' years on campus.

Meet the 2016 Edison Scholars

For most of these young people, learning that they won the $40,000 scholarship was one of the most exciting events of their lives, and the start of a new journey toward achievement and success.
