Edison International established the Howard P. Allen Scholarship Program for dependents of Edison International and Southern California Edison employees and retirees who plan to continue their education in college.
This program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability or national origin.
All awards are not renewable. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements. Students may receive the award a maximum of four times.
All awards are for undergraduate study only and can be used for education-related expenses.
If there are not enough qualified applicants in any one group listed above, awards may be allocated to another group to make full award distribution.
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, work experience, statement of career and educational goals and aspirations, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an online recommendation.
Recipients are selected by Scholarship America. All information received is considered confidential. In no instance does any officer or employee of Edison International play a part in the selection. Decisions of the selection committee are final and not subject to appeal. This program is competitive; not all applicants will be selected as recipients.
The selection process will not be influenced or affected by the actual or perceived race, religion, color, national origin, ancestry, disability, age, gender, or sexual orientation of any applicant.
Applicants will be notified of their status via email in April. This is a competitive program. Not all applicants will be selected as recipients. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Edison International. Payment is made in one installment in August. The payment is mailed to the student’s home address made payable to the educational institution.
Also as part of your application, one online recommendation form must be submitted on your behalf.
Your application is not complete unless all required documents are submitted electronically.
