Applications Open for $40,000 Edison Scholars STEM Scholarships


Edison Scholars recognizes students that want to be makers of tomorrow – the dreamers, inventors, guardians and pioneers – those who dare to be great.

Each year, we award $40,000 scholarships to 30 high school seniors that want to make a difference in the world by studying science, technology, engineering or math (STEM) in college.

From preventing the rise of ocean levels to increasing access to solar power in underserved communities, real issues need bright ideas to create change. This is a chance for students to stand up, advance their education, and be part of the solution.

Help spread the word with members of your organizations that applications are open. Tweet it, post on Facebook, text it, email it, or print it in your newsletter – whatever works best.
