The AATCC Foundation, Inc., recently announced September deadlines for two programs designed to support students enrolled in university textile programs.
The AATCC Foundation Student Research Support Program is awarding grants of $500 to $4,000 to encourage student research in textile chemistry and related fields important to the textile sciences. Grants are available to both graduate and undergraduate students enrolled in textile programs at U.S. colleges and universities. Grant applications are to be submitted electronically to Dr. Yiqi Yang, chair of the AATCC Foundation Student Research Program. The application deadline is Sept. 30, 2013.
The AATCC Foundation also announced the deadline for The Nonwovens Institute‘s Undergraduate Student Scholarship. Applications for this $2,500 scholarship are due to the AATCC Foundation Inc. by Sept. 4, 2013.
Those interested in applying must be U.S. citizens, or permanent residents who are currently juniors and rising seniors majoring in fiber and polymer sciences, textiles, materials science, paper science, chemical engineering or related disciplines. The purpose is to support undergraduate students interested in pursuing graduate studies in the area of polymers, fibers or nonwovens. The Nonwovens Institute will also cover travel and accommodations for the scholarship recipient to attend one of the Institute‘s bi-annual industrial advisory board (IAB) meetings.
