Embry-Riddle strives to offer its students and their families every opportunity to minimize their educational debt. Scholarships are a great way to accomplish this.

Embry-Riddle offers many funded and endowed scholarships through the Financial Aid office. We are also very aware that there are many external scholarship opportunities available. These external scholarship opportunities are not always obvious or easily located, but they exist! The Scholarship Pages can assist our students and their families by offering information and direction towards these external scholarship opportunities.

As scholarship applications become available, the scholarship’s URL will be posted in its corresponding section. Because current scholarship opportunities change from time to time, it is important to check the Scholarship Pages frequently.


2014 Endowed Scholarship Application

The Financial Aid Office will open the 2014 Endowed Scholarship Application process in early January 2014.  It will remain open until mid-February 2014.  

Visit the Daytona Beach Financial Aid website to apply for the ERAU Endowed Scholarships.  

Remember, one application is all you need. One application entitles you to be considered for all the endowed scholarships.

You can't win it if you're not in it!
