Expanding the Aviation Workforce: Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Names Inaugural Cohort of Boeing Scholars

DRUCKEN

Le Bourget, France, June 18, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Twenty-two highly accomplished students will receive generous scholarships as part of a strategic effort to expand and diversify the aviation workforce, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and The Boeing Company announced today at the Paris Air Show.

The Boeing scholarships were established to help students interested in pursuing degrees in aviation science, aircraft maintenance and other fields at Embry-Riddle – the world's premier aviation and aerospace institution. Supported by a $3 million endowment from Boeing, the scholarships will be made available to all students –with a focus on increasing the number of women, underrepresented minorities and military veterans and their dependents enrolled at the University.

The inaugural cohort of scholarship recipients were selected based on their academic achievements as well as demonstrated financial need. Each scholarship ranges from $5,000 to $7,500, to be awarded annually for two years.

"The Boeing scholarships at Embry-Riddle will allow academically successful underrepresented students and veterans to pursue a university degree, gain critical aviation skills, and ultimately, help diversify the industry," said Dr. P. Barry Butler, president of Embry-Riddle. "At a time when we are facing a global shortage of aviation professionals, it is critically important to widen the talent pipeline. It is an honor to partner with Boeing to enrich and enhance the aviation workforce."

"Different perspectives make our industry stronger. These scholarships will help address the need for aerospace talent, including pilots and maintenance technicians, by equipping students from diverse backgrounds with the skills they need to succeed," said Boeing Chairman, President and CEO Dennis Muilenburg. "We congratulate the first class of Boeing Scholars at Embry-Riddle and look forward to watching their futures unfold."
