The Fund for Embry-Riddle is the place where your annual gift combines with others to make a powerful difference in the lives of our students.
Combined with the thousands of other gifts from alumni, parents, friends, faculty, staff and even students, your contribution helps transform the "higher calling" of an Embry-Riddle education into a reality for our best and brightest.
You can decide where your gift goes by designating it toward a scholarship, program, college or other area of need.
The son of two teachers in India, Arth Pande has had a passion for flight since childhood, but affording a college education in the United States has been tough.
“I have held seven different jobs during the six semesters I have spent in college,” said the aerospace engineering major. “However, I never let these issues get in my way and worked hard to win two scholarships in my third year of college, along with landing the RA position that covered my living expenses.”
But as Pande neared his May 2015 graduation date, his finances became even tighter. Needing to focus more on academics his senior year, he resigned his RA position and lost his free housing benefit.
