The American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists Foundation awards thousands of dollars in grants and prizes each year. Congratulate the Color Solutions International scholar, the Gavin Family Scholarship recipient, and the seven Metro Scholarship winners!

Amanda Grisham,
from Oregon State University, was awarded the 2011 Color Solutions International Textile & Apparel Design Scholarship. Grisham recently completed her junior year as an Apparel Design & Merchandise Management major. She is also pursuing a minor in Business & Entrepreneurship. Grisham says her career goal is to “create garments that are functional, practical, and beautiful.” Advisor Brigitte Cluver says Grisham has already sought out “opportunities to better prepare herself for her future career”—including joining AATCC as a student and attending a regional meeting of the Association. The US$2,500 Color Solutions International scholarship is awarded annually to a student studying textile or apparel design.

Rachel Anderson, North Carolina State University, was awarded the US$5,000 Charles E. Gavin III Family Scholarship. The Gavin Scholarship is available for eligible rising freshmen, sophomores, juniors, or seniors at Auburn University, Clemson University, the Georgia Institute of Technology, North Carolina State University, or the University of Georgia. (It is the desire and hope of the Gavin Family that those students who are chosen to receive this scholarship will, someday, consider passing this opportunity on to another deserving student.) Anderson is studying Textile Engineering with a minor in Industrial and Systems Engineering. Though she started as a Computer Engineering student, Anderson realized that she “was more interested in using computers than making them.”

She says, “I have since realized how broad of a field Textiles is, and I have found a specific niche within the Textile Engineering discipline that feels almost as if it was created for me.” Anderson hopes to use her skills to model and optimize outsourcing and response to fluctuations in demand within the textile industry. Professor Melissa Pasquinelli praises Anderson's work ethic and intellect. “The types of questions that she asks both during and outside of class indicated that she not only comprehended the information, but that she was applying, analyzing, and synthesizing the material.

The AATCC Foundation Metro Scholarship is an annual scholarship offered to sophomores and juniors in New England, New York, and New Jersey attending universities with student chapters of AATCC. The scholarship can be divided among several student recipients, with a minimum award of US$1,000 each.

The 2011 winners of the Metro Scholarship were:

Elizabeth Hogan, University of Rhode Island, considers the Textile Marketing program a great opportunity to pursue her interests in marketing without being a full-time business student. She also plans to complete a minor in Art.
