Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Honors Program: Leadership Ethics and Research


The Honors Program provides a student-centered learning environment that challenges and inspires students through curricular and co-curricular activities. Students are encouraged to be active and engaged leaders in the university, Prescott, and global community. The program offers individualized academic advising and small classes dedicated to Honors Students. The program also provides funding for leadership, research, global engagement, and service.


The Honors Program will create a community of scholars who are able to address problems and issues that others do not even see, engaging in and changing the world as thoughtful forward-thinking individuals.


The benefits of becoming an Honors student include priority registration beginning the 2nd semester; priority housing; Honors advising; funding opportunities for global engagement, research/scholarship, and service and leadership programs and projects; and Honors recognition on permanent transcript and at graduation ceremonies.
