Better Together STEM Scholarships

Program Overview

To give our next generation more opportunities to learn and succeed in higher education, PG&E annually awards ten scholarships of up to $20,000 per year for up to five years, and 90 one-time $2,000 scholarships.

The STEM Scholarship program is open to high school and college students pursuing a major in a STEM field. In selecting scholarship recipients, PG&E looks for students who:

  • Demonstrate academic achievement
  • Have a financial need (students are required to apply to FAFSA
  • Exhibit personal or community leadership

However, those attributes are not required. To apply, candidates must simply meet all of the following criteria:

  • Be a minimum of 16 years of age and be a high school senior or graduate, have received GED certification or be a current postsecondary undergraduate student
  • Live within the PG&E service area
  • Plan to enroll in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two-year or four-year college, university or vocational-technical school for the entire 2016-2017 academic year
