About the Amelia Earhart Fellowship

Launched off the realization that globally, women make up an underrepresented presence in the aerospace industry, about 25% of the workforce, the Amelia Earhart Fellowship seeks to ensure that women have access to all resources and are represented in decision-making positions on an equal basis with men. 

Offered by Zonta International, the Amelia Earhart Fellowship annually awards funding to up to 35 women pursuing Ph.D./doctoral degrees in aerospace engineering and space sciences. 

Fellows in the program have successfully gone on to become astronauts, aerospace engineers, astronomers, professors, geologists, business owners, heads of companies, even Secretary of the US Air Force.
