These grants are for NBAA leadership opportunities, University of Virginia Darden School of Business, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, or IADA Foundation leadership programs and industry events. 

"These great young professionals and students who are building their business aviation careers will be the industry's leaders in the future, and the IADA team is so very fortunate to be a part of their stories," said IADA executive director Wayne Starling. "We wish them well as their careers take off and they become the business aviation leaders of tomorrow."
