Financial Assistance Opportunities for Graduate Students

Scholarships

Embry-Riddle awards scholarships to outstanding applicants who meet the criteria set by the University. Applicants with conditional status, or who have not submitted required test scores, are not eligible for these scholarships. There is no additional application required.

Scholarship decisions are made after a student is accepted into an Embry-Riddle graduate program. Students are selected on the basis of their academic performance, personal and professional accomplishments, and career goals as evidenced in their résumé and statement of objectives.

This scholarship award is divided equally between the fall and spring semester of each academic year, and funds are credited toward the student's tuition for the appropriate semester. Recipients must maintain a 3.0 GPA and are enrolled in a minimum of nine (9) credit hours.

Assistantships

Assistantships are open to accepted graduate students with full graduate status, who have a minimum 3.0 undergraduate cumulative GPA. A graduate assistantship is a contract between the student and the department sponsoring the assistantship position. Candidates will perform duties in the areas of teaching, administrative, or research in exchange for a tuition waiver and/or stipend.

Veterans Educational Benefits

The University Veterans Affairs Office acts as a liaison between veterans and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. If you plan to use Veterans Administration educational benefits while enrolled at Embry-Riddle, please contact the office of Veterans Affairs at 386-226-6350 for details and requirements.

Army ROTC

The Army Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) two-year program provides graduate students the opportunity to become an Army officer and obtain a full scholarship to the University.

This graduate student program has one of the highest selection rates to the Army career field of choice — either on active duty or in the National Guard. The ERAU Army ROTC program is recognized as being in the top 4 percent nationally and has enjoyed 100 percent selection of qualified applicants into flight slots for three straight years.

For complete details, please contact the Daytona Beach campus AROTC at 888-437-2161 or 386-226-6437.
