We have provided you with a general list of scholarships available as well as scholarships by specific area of interest. These awards are not affiliated with Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University as they are outside sources of funding. Select your area of interest for available scholarship opportunities and review the information carefully prior to applying.

You can be awarded up to your cost of attendance, so apply for as many scholarships as possible. Some scholarships require a written essay. It is best to create a general draft and edit that copy for each individual scholarship.

Congratulations to our Worldwide external scholarship winners! 64 students were awarded a total of $257,313.60 in external scholarship funds during the 2021-2022 academic year.
