Our Mission

To create a permanent legacy to address the financial needs of female students and provide young women with role models and mentors who can pave the way to success in the fields of aerospace, aviation, and beyond.



Women’s Giving Circle membership is open to Embry-Riddle alumni and friends of the university. We ask members to contribute $100/month with a 3-year commitment for a total of $3,600. Membership contributions fund the Women’s Giving Circle endowment, which provides need-based, term scholarships that directly impact academic opportunity, retention, and industry representation for female students.


Mentorship and Networking Opportunities

Members are invited to serve as mentors to directly impact the next generation of female leaders in aerospace, aviation, and beyond. We will host in-person and virtual networking events for students and members throughout the year.


Other Ways to Participate

Corporations can also sponsor memberships for female staff members to serve as mentors in the Women's Giving Circle mentoring program.

Supplemental or One-Time Gifts

Members and non-members may also choose to make gifts directly to our endowed scholarship fund. These supplemental gifts can easily be made through our online giving form.
