Science vs Art: A Friendly Competition!

AATCC Foundation's current fundraising campaign involves endowing two of its most popular scholarships: the Textile Chemistry Scholarship and the Textile Design Scholarship! The goal for this year is to raise $6,000 for each scholarship. The BIG Question is which scholarship will be endowed first? Cast your vote for Chemistry or Design—or both—with a donation to the Foundation and FUND the FUTURE of TEXTILES!

The Foundation operates from The AATCC Technical Center located in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, USA. Because the influence and activities of the Association extend far beyond the borders of North America, the Foundation solicits funds worldwide.
