Congratulations to Owen Buchan, a fourth year student of Engineering who has been awarded ISTAT Foundation Scholarship for 2020.

The International Society of Transport Aircraft Trading Foundation (ISTAT Foundation) was founded in 1994 to support individuals and institutions that promote the advancement of commercial aviation and humanitarianism. Scholarships are awarded annually to academically-qualified students pursuing an aviation-related degree at an accredited university.

"I am thrilled to be a recipient of the 2020 ISTAT scholarship. ISTAT is a foundation that supports individuals and institutions in the international aviation community; it is incredible to have their support and recognition in my studies and future career. I am grateful for the financial assistance given towards my education, and I look forward to being part of the ISTAT community in the future. At university, I have developed a keen interest in aerospace engineering and would like to pursue this as a career after my degree. I am particularly interested in new, innovative technologies so, a job working in research and development is my aspiration. I hope the scholarship and the opportunities it brings will help me achieve my professional goals. I want to take this opportunity to thank my Director of Studies, Dr Jossy Sayir, and my Tutor, Dr Emily Kate Price, for their support in my application to the ISTAT scholarship."

We all wish Owen a very succesful fourth year at Robinson and wish all his dreams and aspiration come true.
