PG&E offers scholarships
Pacific Gas and Electric Co. is accepting applications from students to receive PG&E Bright Minds scholarships, as well as scholarships from the utility's Employee Resource Groups.
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 toward their studies.
Eligible students will be enrolled in a full-time undergraduate program at an accredited two- or four-year college, university or vocational-technical school for the duration of the 2013-2014 academic year.
PG&E's ERG scholarships have provided more than $2.5 million to hundreds of recipients throughout northern and central California since 1989.
The deadline to apply for the ERG scholarships is Feb. 1.
