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, a fellowship of $10,000 is awarded annually to 35 talented women, pursuing doctoral degrees in aerospace-related sciences or aerospace-related engineering around the globe.
