Catching up with Edison Scholars

This National STEM Day, Edison International encourages high school seniors to apply for its annual Edison Scholars Program.

Edison International is celebrating National STEM and STEAM Day on Nov. 8 by catching up with previous Edison Scholars. The winners discuss how the $40,000 scholarship has impacted their lives and their advice for students hoping to make a difference through STEM (science, technology, engineering or math).

Each year, Edison International, the parent company of Southern California Edison, awards $40,000 scholarships, paid over four years, to 30 high school students who plan to major in designated STEM fields at a four-year accredited U.S. college or university. See the list of eligible STEM majors.

Scholarship applications are now being accepted through Dec. 14. To apply and obtain additional eligibility information, visit:
