University Institutional Scholarships

Embry-Riddle donor scholarships, formally called endowed and term scholarships, are generously donated funds that help students pay for their education. If you are selected for a scholarship, it will be paid in the Fall and Spring semesters of the following academic year. Completing the application does not guarantee that you will receive a scholarship and you must reapply for these awards each year.

Congratulations to our Worldwide donor scholarship winners! Eighty-four students were awarded a total of $76,423 in donor scholarships during the 2017-2018 academic year.

We encourage each applicant to complete a FAFSA application as many scholarships require Embry-Riddle have one on file. You are not required to use federal aid to fund your education.

Embry-Riddle Worldwide students are eligible for university institutional scholarship opportunities. Students can apply from January through August each year. The application will open in January and will remain open through 5 p.m. EST on August 31. Recipients are chosen by the Worldwide Scholarship Committee during the months of August and September and notifications will be sent via Embry-Riddle email by the end of September for the academic year.


  • Please fill out as much information as you can in order to increase your eligibility for one or more of the scholarships. Even if you do not have leadership, honors or community activities, apply anyway. Some scholarships do not require extracurricular activities.
