(Victor Valley)Edison International, the parent company of Southern California Edison, welcomes applications for the Edison Scholars program, which supports the study of math, science, engineering and technology. The Edison Scholars Scholarship program is a part of Edison’s long standing tradition of investing in the future by making the dream of a college education a reality for deserving students.
In celebration of its 125th anniversary, Edison has expanded the program from 75 to 125 scholarships. In addition, they have made changes to current eligibility requirements. Recipients are no longer limited to attending an accredited four-year college or university within Edison’s service territory. The program has been expanded to include attendance at any accredited four-year college or university across the U.S.
Each selected high school graduating senior will be awarded a $2,500 college scholarship. Awards are renewable an additional three years for a total of $10,000, provided recipients meet all eligibility requirements.
The Edison Scholars application postmark deadline is March 15, 2011. Please encourage potential scholars to visit www.edison.com/edisonscholars for more information.
