PLEASE NOTE: February 1, 2016 was the deadline for Employee Resource Group (ERG) scholarship programs.
PG&E Employee Resource Groups help bring our employees together, and provide an essential bridge of communication to our customers, regardless of culture, age or gender. In support of the communities we serve, Employee Resource Groups offer scholarship opportunities for individuals who are pursuing higher education. A key Employee Resource Group role is to award scholarships to college-bound students for academic achievements and community service.
Although PG&E uses a standard scholarship application, each Employee Resource Group reserves the opportunity to award funds to students who show a commitment to a specific community or cause. Each Employee Resource Group requires an additional supplemental application. View Employee Resource Group scholarship applications and supplemental scholarship applications.
