“PG&E has provided nearly $70 million towards educational initiatives over the last decade, and we are proud to help further the educational goals of local students in communities we have the privilege of serving,” said Ezra Garrett, Vice President of Community Relations. “By awarding scholarships to accomplished and deserving students, PG&E is creating opportunities for today’s students to reach their full potential tomorrow.”
Since 2012, the PG&E Bright Minds™ Scholarship program has awarded nearly $3 million to accomplished students based on a combined demonstration of community leadership, personal triumph, financial need and academic achievement. All majors are eligible, with preference given to students majoring in engineering. 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 2015-2016 academic year.
“As a 2014 PG&E Bright Minds™ Scholarship recipient, I can stay focused on my studies and keep on track for academic success,” said Tatiana Overturf from Templeton. “As I start the second semester of my freshman year at Fresno State, I am incredibly grateful to PG&E for providing me the resources to make my dreams a reality.”
The deadline for applying for the PG&E Bright Minds Scholarship is February 9, 2015. For more information and to apply, visit www.pge.com/brightminds. Scholarship winners will be announced in the spring.
