$40,000 STEM College Scholarships for High School Seniors

The Edison Scholars Program recognizes students who want to be makers of tomorrow — the dreamers, inventors, guardians and pioneers — those who dare to be great.

Each year, Edison International awards $40,000 college scholarships to 30 high school seniors to help them follow their dreams in science, technology, engineering or math (STEM) and empower them to change the world.

This is a chance for students with big dreams to advance their education and take part in shaping a brighter future.

Edison International has awarded more than $12.3 million in scholarships to 700 students through the Edison Scholars program since 2006.

The Details

Here’s the rundown of requirements:

  • Must be a high school senior with at least a cumulative 3.0 GPA, plan to pursue studies in the STEM fields at a four-year accredited college or university and show financial need.
  • Eligible STEM majors include computer and information systems, engineering, engineering technology, management information systems, mathematics, natural resources and conservation and physical sciences.
  • Applicants must live in Southern California Edison’s service territory.
  • The top 50 finalists will be required to submit a short video and potentially participate in a final interview. Don’t stress, these are just ways to get to know you better.
  • Dependents of Edison International and SCE employees and retirees are not eligible.

The 2022 Edison Scholars application is now open through December 13, 2021.
