ISTAT Foundation Grants Program
The ISTAT Foundation offers aviation-related grant funding to nongovernmental, not-for-profit organizations around the globe that advance commercial aviation. The ISTAT Foundation Grants Program is administered by the Grants Committee of the ISTAT Foundation Board of Trustees. The mission of the Grants Program is to (1) provide funds to global organizations that aid in the promotion of the aviation industry, (2) to build and enhance the awareness of the wide range of careers in aviation, and (3) to encourage the next generation to consider a future in aviation industry.
How to Apply
The grants committee is now accepting applications for the 2018 ISTAT Foundation Grants Program. In an effort to have greater impact on our grant recipients and to support initiatives that would benefit from involvement from the ISTAT community, this year the committee may consider awarding requests that exceed $10,000 USD (up to $25,000 USD). Please note that this effort may result in fewer grant recipients than in years past. It is important that your organization's grant application includes detailed information about your organization's program/project and outlines ways to include the ISTAT brand and membership in your initiative.
The deadline to submit applications is Tuesday, 1 May 2018. Applicants will be notified of the status of their application no later than 1 August.
For more information on the ISTAT Foundation Grants Program, please contact ISTAT Foundation Headquarters.
