Each year Amelia Earhart Memorial Scholarships are awarded to qualified members for fully funded advanced flight training, jet type ratings and technical training. Partial funding of $10,000 per academic year is awarded for academic scholarships.

Aside from generous donations received from 99s Chapters, Sections and individual members, the United Parcel Service Foundation has graciously donated significant funds in the past. 99s members and other individuals have donated to the Fund through their estate bequests and the Perpetual Scholarship program. Since 1941 the AEMSF has awarded more than 500 scholarships. The amount awarded for these scholarships, including Research Scholar Grants and Fly Now Awards exceeds $11 Million. The AEMSF’s investment account is valued at well over $5.5 Million dollars. 2019 AE Scholarship applications will be available by September
