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.

Since 2006, we’ve awarded more than $8.7 million in scholarships to 610 students through the Edison Scholars Program.

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. Don’t stress, it’s simple.
  • Dependents of Edison International and SCE employees and retirees are not eligible.

The application period for the 2019 Edison Scholars is now closed. Winners will be notified spring 2019. For students graduating in 2020, the application period will reopen in fall 2019.
