Today, women remain a distinct minority in science and engineering, representing approximately 10 percent of professionals in these fields. The Amelia Earhart Fellowship program helps talented women, pursuing advanced studies in the typically male-dominated fields of aerospace-related sciences and engineering, achieve their educational goals. 

The Amelia Earhart Fellowship of $10,000, is awarded to 35 Fellows around the globe each year, and may be used at any university or college offering accredited post-graduate courses and degrees. 

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. Applicants must be registered in a full-time Ph.D./doctoral program when funds are received in September and will not graduate before April.

Please note that post-doctoral research programs are not eligible for the Fellowship.

Applications for the Fellowships must be received or post-marked by November 15, 2015 to be considered.
