Student Research Support Grant Program


This grant program assists undergraduate and graduate students with research in textile chemistryfound_img and on textile-related projects. The purpose is to encourage original research in textile design, materials, processing, and testing. Research findings will be made available to the public and will be used in the education of college and university students. Grants range from $500 to $4,000.

A stipend for up to $500 for travel and/or registration to present the research project at a technical conference will be considered based on the project and the particular event at which the presentation will be made.  This stipend will be funded separately by AATCC Foundation upon request and approval.  Priority will be given to presentations that will be made at the AATCC International Conference or other AATCC programs.  Approval of the travel funds should be received prior to making travel arrangements.  Reimbursements of up to $500 will be made once the Foundation receives proper receipts for pre-approved travel expenses
