WAI Receives $12,500 Grant from The ISTAT Foundation
For the seventh year in a row, Women in Aviation International received a $12,500 grant from The International Society of Transport Aircraft Training (ISTAT) Foundation, which funds educational programs that advance commercial aviation.
This grant will be used to expand the distribution of Aviation for Girls magazine, which introduces girls ages 8 to 17 to careers in aviation and aerospace. With this grant, the number of copies printed will be distributed in both hard copy and digitally. The 2021 issue of Aviation for Girls will be available digitally to all Women in Aviation International members and any interested individuals at WAI.org.
"The ISTAT Foundation’s support of Aviation for Girls as well as our Girls in Aviation Day events puts all the excitement of aviation in the hands of kids all around the world. With interesting and informative content crafted for all age groups, girls can see opportunities that they may never have considered. ISTAT has been a consistent partner since the inception of Girls in Aviation Day. Their generosity helps make thousands of dreams possible,” says WAI CEO Allison McKay.
