Edison International, the parent company of Southern California Edison (SCE), reminds high school seniors that there’s still time to apply for the 2014-15 Edison Scholars Program, which offers $1.2 million in scholarships to high school seniors planning to pursue college studies in science, technology, engineering or math (STEM) fields. The application deadline is Feb. 1.

Thirty scholarships valued at $40,000 each and paid over four years will be awarded to high school seniors who either live in or attend public or private high schools in SCE’s service area.

Applicants must have a 2.8 GPA or better. Students from low-income families and underserved communities are especially encouraged to apply.

Since 2006, Edison International has awarded nearly $4 million in scholarships to 460 Edison Scholars.

To apply and to get additional eligibility information, students are encouraged to go to: www.scholarsapply.org/edisonscholars. Applications must be received by 11:59 p.m. PST, Feb. 1.
