Foundation Happenings
The ISTAT Foundation is committed to supporting the education and development of individuals who wish to pursue a career in aviation. As such, two unique programs have been developed to foster this commitment.

The ISTAT Foundation Internship Program
This program assists aspiring aviation-focused university students by matching them with internship opportunities at ISTAT member companies. Students receive real world experience, career development and a stipend from the Foundation while member companies receive talented, motivated, qualified interns and future employment candidates.

Potential employers have the opportunity to post an open summer or long-term internship position on the ISTAT Foundation Internship Portal.

Visit for more information.

ISTAT University
Launched in 2015, ISTAT University is a specialized course designed for students wishing to become part of the aviation finance and trading community. In collaboration with Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU), Daytona Beach, this program provides an overview of the many facets of the aviation finance and leasing industry and exposes students to real world concepts and methodologies. Course materials have been developed by ERAU faculty working in partnership with ISTAT industry practitioners.

Starting in the fall, ISTAT U will be available to qualified students from around the world by way of a distance learning, web-based course offering. Applications for the online program are now available.
