IADA scholarships and grants awarded to future business aviation leaders
The IADA Foundation has awarded numerous scholarships to boost the industry's next generation of business aviation leaders.

Six university students have each received $5,000 scholarships from the IADA Foundation for their college studies, and eight young professionals, already employed in the business aviation resale industry by IADA members, have been awarded grants for various education, learning and leadership opportunities.

"These super smart young business aviation pros and students who are building their business aviation resumes are the future of the resale industry, and the IADA team wishes them very rewarding careers," says executive director Wayne Starling. "We welcome their progress as they develop and hone their professional skills."

The nonprofit IADA Foundation offers financial support to aspiring students and young professionals while also assisting aviation related charities in times of need.
