Amelia Earhart Fellowship

According to Women in Aerospace, in 2010, roughly 10 percent of the aerospace industry was made up of women. While the number has slowly increased, there must be reinforcements behind each step forward. To assist the future of women in this field and other aerospace-related sciences and engineering, Zonta International established the Amelia Earhart Fellowship in 1938 in honor of legendary pilot and Zontian, Amelia Earhart. Today, the Fellowship of US$10,000 is awarded annually to 35 talented women, pursuing Ph.D./doctoral degrees in aerospace-related sciences or aerospace-related engineering around the globe.

Women of any nationality pursuing a Ph.D./doctoral degree, who demonstrate a superior academic record in the field of aerospace-related sciences or aerospace-related engineering, are eligible and encouraged to apply. For a full list of the eligibility and application requirements, please refer to the application.

The application deadline is 15 November.

Since the program’s inception, Zonta International has awarded 1,508 Amelia Earhart Fellowships, totaling more than US$9.3 million, to 1,079 women from 70 countries. Click here to view a map of where our AE Fellows are from.

These fellowships are made possible through generous donations to the Zonta International Foundation.
