Airfinance Journal is delighted to announce Sally Yan Wang as the awardee of the Airfinance Journal and CDB Aviation Scholarship for 2019/20.

The Scholarship, funded by Airfinance Journal and CDB Aviation, aims to support gender diversity in aviation industry.

Yan is working toward a master’s degree in Aviation Finance at UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School in 2019/20.

"I’m very honoured to be awarded the Airfinance Journal (AFJ) Scholarship supported by CDB Aviation, which encourages female practitioners in the aviation industry, said Yan. “I’ve noticed the focus and significant efforts being made by the aviation finance industry generally, encouraged by Airfinance Journal, in promoting diversity in its employment/promotion practices and especially in recognising women’s contribution to this industry, including the Aviation Woman of the Year award.

Equally importantly, it is also spiritual support for women from Asia who typically take greater risks and need to be encouraged to take up these opportunities. It shows me the industry’s focus on developing its female talents are real and substantive."

Airfinance Journal is a market leading financial publication of the global aircraft and aviation business. Published continually since 1979, it has been at the forefront of supporting and informing aviation professionals. The Journal includes the latest news, analysis and data relating to the financing of airlines, aircraft leasing companies and manufacturers.
