2020 Edison Scholars Applications Now Open

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.
