The Kanti and Hansa Jasani Family Textile Scholarships are available to Indian students attending US universities, specifically Indian citizens with student visas. Applicants should be pursuing a career in a field involving textile engineering, textile technology, textile chemistry, textile science, textile design or a related discipline.
As the names of degrees and departments change over time, it will be left to the sole discretion of the Jasani Family Scholarship Committee to determine if a student’s course work meets the criteria intended by these Guidelines. It is hoped that this scholarship will raise awareness and encourage involvement in AATCC student chapters and activities.
One scholarship is designated for students at North Carolina State University, alma mater of scholarship founder Kantilal A. Jasani. North Carolina State University students are also eligible for the two general scholarships, but other schools will be given priority.
