ERAU Scholarships

ERAU Scholarships:  It looks like you are automatically looked at for these scholarships when you apply to Embry-Riddle University.  It requires certain ACT/SAT scores and GPA.   It is recommended that you highlight the degree programs that are considered for the scholarships, the minimum GPA and SAT/ACT scores required for eligibility. If a student is interested in attending ERAU and pursuing a career as a pilot, they could look at one of these programs listed (on the flyer), and add on a flight minor in order to be eligible for these scholarships. Of course, these two scholarships are not all that Embry-Riddle offers, but they are the largest.  Here is a list of all of their scholarships as well.
