The Industrial Fabrics Foundation (IFF) recently announced the recipients of the 2009 Industrial Fabrics Association International (IFAI) Membership Scholarship.

The recipients of the IFAI Membership Scholarship are Glenn Elliott Aust sponsored by Emhke Manufacturing Co Inc and Sherry Weidenburner sponsored by Filtec Precise Inc.

This scholarship award provides tuition expenses at an accredited college, university or technical school. Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic achievement, community service, financial need and interest in a future career in the specialty fabrics industry.

To qualify for the IFAI Member Scholarship award, applicants must be employed by or related to an employee of an IFAI member company.

North Carolina State University's College of Textiles is set to unveil new Textile Fundamentals distance learning courses at IFAI Expo 2008 on Tuesday, October 21.

Due to increased industry interest in continuing professional education, the College of Textiles has developed courses designed to give industry professionals a broad overview of various topics important to the industry - fabric finishing, textile fibers, fabric preparation, dyeing and preparation, and nonwoven fabrics among others.

These courses are conducted via the Internet and include instructor commentary, text, pictures, animation and video. They cater to various industry professionals and can be customized to meet a company or institution's needs. This is a flexible tool that companies can use to reach their education goals in a short time frame and at a relatively low cost.
