The College of Textiles has one of the largest college-based scholarship programs at NC State University. The majority of scholarship support comes from the North Carolina Textile Foundation. The North Carolina Textile Foundation (NCTF) was established in December 1942 to aid and promote all types of textile education and research at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, NC. One of the most important forms of support provided for the College of Textiles by the Foundation is the Scholarship Program. Established by the board of directors in 1980, the program has four components: the NCTF Centennial Scholars Program (created in 1999), NCTF Scholarships, NCTF Prestige Scholarships, and the NCTF Merit Graduate Fellowship Program.

These awards are based on the merit qualifications of the scholar without regard to financial need. Advancement in the scholarship process will depend on the following criteria: demonstrated high academic achievement throughout high school, proven and potential leadership qualities, active participation in extracurricular activities throughout high school, and unique experiences.


Applicants must be qualified for admissions to North Carolina State University and committed to a baccalaureate program of study in the College of Textiles.
