AATCC Foundation scholarship, fellowship applications now open

Posted January 6, 2021

 

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. – The AATCC Foundation scholarship and fellowship application is now open for the 2022-2023 academic year.

 

Undergraduate and graduate students in any textile-related discipline may apply for up to 20 separate scholarships and $100,000 total funding with one simple online form. Students enter their school, education level, major and other criteria once. The system automatically lists matching scholarships and any required personal statements.

 

There’s something for everyone – from an Indian citizen studying fashion design in Rhode Island to a U.S. citizen pursuing a materials science Ph.D. in Texas.

 

Several scholarships have February 2022 deadlines. The rest close on March 31, 2022. Recipients will be notified over the summer. In addition to the tuition funding, all Foundation scholars receive free registration for the 2022 AATCC Textile Discovery Summit and up to $500 travel reimbursement.
