Scholarship Fund

As Embry-Riddle’s Civil Engineering Program marks its 20th anniversary this fall, it also

celebrates the creation of its first ever endowed scholarship: The Timothy W. Neubert – Neubert Aero Corporation Endowed Scholarship for Civil Engineering. For Tim Neubert, President of Neubert Aero Corp, it’s an investment in the future of aviation. “The pilot and airplanes need to land on something and I think there are materials and design solutions that can be engineered to make runways more affordable to use and longer lasting,” he says. His hope is that Embry-Riddle students will lead this effort by enrolling in an industry specific profession-Airport Civil Engineering.

Do you know of someone who needs financial assistance and what is the Scholarship Selection Process?

An ERAU scholarship selection committee comprised of faculty and administrators, Civil Engineering Department Chair, and in coordination with the Office of Financial Aid, will review applications and make recommendations of the recipients for the scholarship awards for final selection and approval. The scholarship will be awarded annually and paid on a semester basis to a student meeting the established criteria listed below:

  • Applicant must be enrolled at the Daytona Beach and/or Worldwide campus as a full-time/part-time undergraduate student in the College of Engineering. The applicant is majoring in the field of Civil Engineering, preference given to those with a concentration in runway design/pavement performance.
  • Applicant must be a Junior or Senior.
  • Applicant must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher.
  • Scholarship will not be awarded to the same student in successive semesters.
  • Applicant must show financial need as demonstrated by a completed Free Application for Federal Student Aid or FAFSA.
  • Applicant must show involvement in industry related extra-curricular activities/student clubs involved in airports and organizations around campus that support Airport Planning & Design, and completed at least one discovery flight and/or logged 1-3 hours toward private pilot license, and may or may not hold part-time/full-time job.
  • Applicant must write short essay on following topic: How does different runway surface contaminates, such as snow, oil, rubber, and “wet” directly effect high speed (jet) tire performance for landing or deporting aircraft on an asphalt or concrete runway?

In accordance with ERAU policy, the Office of Financial Aid will oversee administration of the scholarship and process all awards. This Fund, to the extent awards are available, will be used to pay for tuition, textbooks, fees, and any other items included in the cost of education.
