The Undergraduate Research Support Program sponsored by the Research Triangle Park, N.C.-based
AATCC Foundation and the Raleigh, N.C.-based Institute of Textile Technology (ITT) is making grants
available to US college juniors for research in the fields of textile engineering or chemistry, and
polymer or materials science.
Through the program, ITT will provide up to five $2,000 awards annually, to be paid directly
to the student to cover supplies, testing, and other research expenses. During their senior year,
award recipients will be invited to present their research and have the opportunity to make
professional contacts at ITT’s Spring Meeting.
The deadline for filing a complete application is Jan. 16, 2009. For a list of areas of
