AATCC launches education endowment

October 2nd, 2019 / By: / Industry News

In November 2021, the American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists (AATCC) will celebrate its 100th anniversary, and to mark this occasion, AATCC Foundation launched the 100 for 100 Endowment Campaign. The goal is to raise $500,000 to fully endow AATCC Foundation scholarships and fellowships. In addition, a longtime member of AATCC has put forth a challenge to endow two AATCC Foundation Graduate Fellowships by matching donations now through May 31, 2020. The Connelly/Perkins Graduate Fellowship is a $5,000 fellowship for U.S. students pursuing a Ph.D. with a focus on fibrous and polymeric materials at Clemson University. The Grady, Hauser, Houser, Daniels Graduate Fellowship is a $5,000 fellowship for U.S. citizens pursuing a Ph.D. in Fiber and Polymer Science at North Carolina State University.
