John Aisenstat

The prestigious scholarship is awarded annually to a student pursuing a career in the culinary or hospitality arts at VCC and is named in honour of former Hy’s Executive Vice President John Aisenstat, who passed away in 2018.

John’s older brother and Hy’s Chief Executive Officer, Neil Aisenstat, and Chief Operating Officer, Megan Buckley, created the scholarship as a way of honouring John’s memory and contributions to the industry in 2019.

Beyond the John Aisenstat Memorial Scholarship, Hy’s of Canada also funds the Hy Aisenstat Memorial Endowment, which recognizes academic achievement and provides financial support for Simon Fraser University students pursuing careers in hospitality and culinary arts.
