The AATCC Foundation Inc. was founded in May 1997 to further the charitable mission of AATCC. The deadline for applications for thousands of dollars in scholarships is rapidly approaching. While some scholarships target a specific university or demographic, many are open to a broad range of students. Several scholarships award funding to multiple students per year.
Besides providing money for tuition and fees, AATCC Foundation scholarships help connect students with professionals in the textile industry. Scholars receive free registration for the AATCC Textile Discovery Summit
to be held October 4-6, 2022, in Charlotte, NC/USA. They are also eligible for up to $500 travel reimbursement to attend the Summit. Students are recognized at the awards reception and have numerous opportunities to connect with textile professionals.
Undergraduate and graduate students in any textile-related discipline may apply for multiple AATCC Foundation scholarships 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. Applications must be completed - including any personal statements and faculty recommendations - by March 31, 2022. Some scholarships require no essay or recommendation.
AATCC Foundation scholarship and fellowship applications
