  • 09.14.09
The Cornell School of Hotel Administration announced the first three winners of the IDeaS Cornell Revenue Management Scholarship: Crystal Edwards, assistant revenue manager at Governor Hotel in Portland, Ore.; Fraser Pearce, revenue manager at Lord Elgin Hotel in Ottawa, ON, Canada; and Alexandre Teixeria, revenue manager at Grand Hyatt Sao Paolo in Brazil.

A scholarship panel at the school selected the recipients based on demonstrated excellence in revenue management and drive to enhance their profession.

This first of its kind scholarship program, funded by IDeaS Revenue Optimization, a leading provider of pricing, forecasting and optimization solutions and services, provides recipients with paid registration to five eCornell courses leading to an eCornell Hotel Revenue Management Certificate.

"We are excited to award the first round of IDeaS Cornell Revenue Management Scholarships," said Tom Kline, executive director of executive education at the School of Hotel Administration. "Thanks to IDeaS, we are able to provide these hospitality professionals with a truly unique professional development opportunity."

"Given the current economic situation, the opportunity to receive a certification from Cornell's leading-edge revenue management program is remarkable," said Pearce. "I can't imagine a better time to educate myself and my hotel in this highly competitive market."

The scholarship will be awarded to a total of six hospitality professionals this calendar year. Applications for the remaining three scholarship awards will be accepted until Monday, October 19, 2009.
