The San Bernardino Valley College Foundation has once again received a $25,000 grant from Edison, which is used to provide $1,000 scholarships to 25 students studying STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics). The Foundation first started awarding the Edison STEM Scholarship in 2014, and this is the fourth year in a row SBVC has been the recipient.

To be eligible, a student must be studying a specific STEM major, including environmental science, chemical engineering, applied physics, and statistics, and intend to pursue a career in a STEM field. Low-income students are also given special consideration. Grants given by Edison International go to help underserved groups, with more than half of the funding benefiting educational and environmental programs.

By receiving such grants, San Bernardino Valley College is able to continue to offer important classes that teach students vital skills and prepare them for jobs.
