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 Darsey Family Scholarship is a $3,000 scholarship available to undergraduate juniors and seniors, and graduate-level students enrolled in a textile- and/or fashion-related program at a US university.
Members of the AATCC Delaware Valley Section (DE, MD, NJ, PA), as well as spouses, children, and grandchildren, are eligible for this $500 scholarship. Undergraduate students studying textiles at a school in the Delaware Valley section are also eligible.
