How did receiving the ISTAT Foundation scholarship affect your life
and career?
The ISTAT Foundation Scholarship is the most significant contribution one could
possibly receive while attending college. This scholarship allowed me to reduce my school
loans debt by a huge amount, and it paid for my last semester of tuition at Purdue. Without
this scholarship, my chances of graduating from Purdue and obtaining a decent job in
today's aviation industry would have been much smaller. I realize that I am a very fortunate
person, and I truly appreciate the privilege of being awarded this scholarship. I believe
that this scholarship has been the most beneficial impact in my aviation career, and for the
same reason, it is now my goal to contribute back to the aviation community and the ISTAT
Foundation by helping other talented aviation students in need of financial aid.

What did you learn from attending the ISTAT Annual Conference?

Diego H. Estrada
After attending the ISTAT Annual Conference, I realized that I got a lot of practical
insight into the aviation industry to complement my aviation college courses. It is
overwhelming to comprehend how immensely the aviation industry is impacted by
this event. I believe that it is a privilege to be able to attend this conference, and I
acknowledge that I owe a lot of my success to having attended this event.

How did receiving the ISTAT Foundation scholarship affect your life
and career?
As a 22-year-old male financially responsible for all my spending, I have been reaping
the benefits of the ISTAT Scholarship in more ways than I can count. It helped to pay
the ever-increasing tuition costs, flight fees and room and board while in school. It also
helped me to further my education by receiving my CFII this past July. I knew from a
very young age that I wanted to become a pilot. I soon figured out how expensive it
would be to obtain that goal. The ISTAT scholarship helped to lighten my college loans
that seemed to be stacking up over the years while attending school. It means so much
to me to know that there are people in this world that give to these types of scholarships
for people like myself who want the dream so badly but just did not have the financial
backing to make it happen all the way. I am so thankful for the scholarship and hopefully
one day I can be in the position to give back to someone in need. This scholarship was a
tremendous help to me and I will forever be grateful to ISTAT.

What did you learn from attending the ISTAT Annual Conference?
The conference itself was an experience like no other. Just to meet and be one-on-one
with people of such high caliber was practically another scholarship in itself! Hearing the
stories and experiences shared was very helpful in narrowing down where I wanted to
take my aviation career. The routes and paths taken to get where they wanted to go was
inspirational and truly motivating. It was an experience that I would definitely take the
offer and opportunity to do again and again, year after year! Thank you, ISTAT!
