With graduation for high school seniors right around the corner, many teenagers are diligently hunting for scholarships. For those hopefuls looking to major in engineering, certain sciences, technology, or mathematics, the Bright Minds Scholarship might be just what they’re looking for.

During the last two years, PG&E has awarded many high school students, college students, and veterans with the Bright Minds Scholarship to help them excel in higher education. Over 2 million dollars total has been devoted to these scholarships so far.

Annually, the Bright Minds Scholarship Program and PG&E team up to offer several renewable scholarships for up to a whopping $20,000 every year for 5 years to bright participants. The program also awards 90 applicants with one-time $2,000 scholarships.

Participants must be at least 16 years old, check to make sure they live in one of the eligible counties, and be prepared to ‘enroll in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two-year or four-year college, university or vocational-technical school for the entire 2014-2015 academic year’.

The scholarship period opened on January 27. It closes February 28, 2014, so it is strongly recommended that interested students act fast.
