Building on existing efforts to improve transfer rates, the University of California and Edison International will offer the Edison STEM Transfer Scholarship to LSAMP-CAMP eligible transfer students for the 2017-2018 academic year.
Edison International offers a two-year $15,000 ($7,500 each year) scholarship based on merit and academic promise. Criteria for the Edison Scholarship are as follows:
- LSAMP-CAMP eligible student with the following major(s): Information & Computer Sciences, Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences (except Environmental Sciences).

The scholarship supports promising UC Irvine students with a conditionally-renewable $7,500 scholarship per year for two-years should the scholar maintain GPA requirements and complete 25 hours of community service per year through the LSAMP-CAMP UC Irvine office. The program also assists transfer students in quickly utilizing their resources at CAMP and the university during their short academic career at UC Irvine. Students gain access to internship information, research opportunities, free tutoring, and seminars on graduate school and career planning.
