Since 2006, the Edison Scholars Program has provided scholarships to students in Southern California Edison’s service area who are passionate about studying STEM and dedicated to making a positive impact in their communities and fields of interest. Each Edison Scholar receives $50,000, paid over four years, and the opportunity to apply for a paid summer internship with SCE after completing their first year of school.

“I am in awe of these students’ ambitions and the energy that drives them to make our world a better place through STEM,” said Pedro J. Pizarro, president and CEO of Edison International. “Delivering the life-changing news to the students and their families is a special moment, and it’s a privilege to be a part of their journey. These students are exceptionally bright, and I look forward to seeing the contributions they make.”

The scholars received the good news with in-person surprise award presentations delivered by Edison representatives while surrounded by family, friends and educators. For many, like scholar Erik Villa from Whittier High School, the scholarship enables them to turn their dreams into a reality.

“I want to bridge the gap and make sure we create equal opportunities for aspiring young engineers. Every student, regardless of their school’s resources or home support, should have the opportunity to explore the field of STEM,” said Villa.

In addition to the presentations, Edison International will celebrate the 2024 Edison Scholars at a spring reception held at its company headquarters in Rosemead. Highlights from the surprise appearances may be found here.
