“Brad Burlingame Honorary Scholarship” at Cal Poly Pomona

In recognition of Brad Burlingame’s commitment to the destination marketing industry, the DMA West Education & Research Foundation established a legacy scholarship in his name in 2016. The “Brad Burlingame Honorary Scholarship” is awarded annually to a student studying at Cal Poly Pomona in California. The scholarship recipient for the 2017-18 academic year is Ciara Cunningham, a student at Cal Poly Pomona, majoring in hospitality management.

Thanks to these individuals and DMOs that have recently donated to the scholarship fund—Michael Martin, Stephanie Nowack, Teresa Stephenson, Santa Monica Travel & Tourism, Sedona Chamber of Commerce & Tourism Bureau, Visit Anchorage, Visit Ogden and Visit Stockton.

Burlingame served as president & CEO of what now is Visit West Hollywood for 18 years. He gave many years of dedicated leadership service to the Association and Foundation. Burlingame believed in introducing young people to the destination marketing profession and was a widely respected leader in the industry.
