This scholarship was established in 2016 in cooperation with InterVISTAS and is intended to celebrate the leadership and innovation of Gerry Bruno, the founding CEO of InterVISTAS Consulting Inc. and a respected leader in commercial airport management.
The scholarship is intended to foster similar qualities in tomorrow’s leaders. Mr. Bruno had a career in aviation, including government service, airport marketing and strategic planning, aviation policy and aviation consulting. His approach to addressing problems and issues was always based on solid analysis, understanding the law and policy context of aviation in society, innovative thinking, and collaborative advocacy for aviation. Mr. Bruno had a lifelong appreciation of the role of education throughout his career, starting with a bachelor’s degree, earning a master’s later in his career and supplementing these with airport-specific studies and accreditation.
Independently administered by the Canadian Airports Council (CAC), in cooperation with ScholarshipsCanada, this scholarship recognizes students with high academic achievement who are working toward a career in aviation management, planning, marketing and/or policy. Participation is available to students registered in any associated Canadian university or college program. The scholarship is awarded every two years at the Airports Canada Conference & Exposition.
