Leaders 'Stepping Forward' Scholarship Program
Great leaders are stepping forward in the world every day. The Aviation Leadership Foundation strongly believes there is a leader in every chair and we are dedicated to supporting these individuals along their leadership journey.
Our organization raises funds to award deserving individuals that are in need of financial assistance to access leadership learning. These awards are made possible by the generosity of donors who believe in the importance of leadership learning. Our members also help to fund the scholarship program as $500 from every Sustaining Member fee is allocated to the Aviation Leadership Foundation Scholarship Fund.
This scholarship program recognizes and supports leaders ‘stepping forward’.

Jonathan Bloomquist Selected as 2016 'Stepping Forward' Scholarship Recipient
Jonathan Bloomquist is currently pursuing his Commercial Pilots License through the BCIT Airline and Flight Operations – Commercial Pilot Program. This is an exciting career change for him. Prior to moving to Vancouver in May, 2015 to attend school, Jonathan was living in Pembroke, Ontario working as a Project Manager on Mechanical Engineering Projects at Canadian Nuclear Laboratories. It has been a roundabout path to get to where he is today, chasing his dream of becoming a commercial pilot, but he has developed leadership and transferable skills through formal education as a Mechanical Engineering Technologist and Project Management Professional, and through valuable work experience in the construction and engineering industry.
Jonathan will graduate the BCIT program in October 2016 and begin his career in the aviation industry. Throughout the program and post-graduation, he plans to develop and foster the leadership skills he already possess and apply them as he progresses within the aviation industry.
Jonathan will receive his award at the 2016 Aviation Leadership Forum on February 16.
From everyone at the Aviation Leadership Foundation - Congratulations, Jonathan!
