Pasadena Water and Power (PWP) has opened the application process for the 2024 Educational Scholarship program, which aims to recognize and support student achievement in academics while promoting awareness about energy and water conservation, and important issues in the utility industry.

PWP’s Educational Scholarship program is an annual initiative that honors outstanding high school seniors in Pasadena. This year, two scholarships will be awarded: a first-place scholarship of $5,000 and a second-place scholarship of $2,500.

To be eligible, students must currently be a senior at a high school in Pasadena, reside within the Pasadena Water and Power service territory, and plan to enroll as a full-time student in a two- or four-year accredited post-secondary institution in the upcoming academic year.

Students are required to write a minimum 500-word essay addressing the topic of electrification and its impact on society and the utility industry. Topics may include the benefits and challenges of electrification, technological advancements, and PWP’s role in addressing the increased demand for electricity.

The deadline for applications is April 5.
