Through its Bright Minds Scholarship program, PG&E will award up to $1 million in scholarships to enable high school, community college and “non-traditional” students to complete their higher education paths. Bright Minds scholarship winners will receive full-ride scholarships of up to $30,000 per year; program finalists will receive $2,500 towards their studies.
Powering our communities with education
Here at PG&E, we believe power does more than fuel our communities with gas and electricity. We believe in personal power, knowing that the right educational opportunities can spark an individual’s success. And from there, what inspires one person has the power to light up an entire community. That’s why we’ve awarded $1 million in scholarships to bright minds who have given back to their local community or who have overcome personal hardship. Does this sound like you or someone you know?
