The International Society of Transport Aircraft Trading Foundation (ISTAT Foundation) has established the Norman C.T. Liu Asia Scholarship Fund to provide financial support to Asian students at Asian universities who are interested in aviation and are studying business, engineering, finance, aviation management or other related aviation subjects.

Norman C.T. Liu is Chairman of GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS) the commercial aircraft leasing and financing arm of GE.

Liu is a 30-year GE veteran with over 20 years with GECAS and is located in Asia. He has served as GECAS president & CEO for seven years.  He graduated from Yale in 1979 and from Harvard Business School in 1982.

“I was privileged to have worked in global aviation for several decades and Asia has been a major driver of growth,” Liu said. “I hope this fund will enable many Asian students to pursue career paths in our critical industrial sector.”
