The Latest Varley Family Textile Technology Scholarship

The American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists (AATCC) Foundation’s Varley Family Textile Technology Scholarship is a $7,500 scholarship that supports students pursuing a career or performing coursework in textile engineering, textile chemistry, textile science or a related discipline at Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) or Cornell University College of Human Ecology. It is is in memory of Gerald M. Varley, who founded Varley Textile Associates and, in 1986, co-founded Vartest.

This year an award was given to Kushbu Jivan, a rising junior at the Fashion Institute of Technology majoring in Textile Development and Marketing with minors in Art History and Ethics & Sustainability. She is independently pursuing biochemistry to help aid in her research and development of sustainable bio-materials that can be commercially applied to apparel, home, and performance textiles. The AATCC Foundation Varley Family Scholarship will allow Kushbu to continue her education and her pursuit of bio-material development while allowing her to become more involved in the industry. She would like to thank all of her teachers for their support as well as the AATCC Foundation for giving her the opportunity to pursue her passion.

You can learn more about the award and apply in the future at the AATCC website.
