NCSU Textile

National Spinning continues to sustain the Joseph Leff Scholarship for a full-time student majoring in textiles at North Carolina State University.

This scholarship, named in honor of our late Chairman, is intended for children and grandchildren of current National Spinning Co., Inc. employees interested in entering the exciting field of textiles.  It offers substantial tuition support. If there are no candidates that meet this qualification, consideration is given to other relatives of National Spinning employees and/or students who live in towns near National Spinning  manufacturing plants.

Textile graduates have many exciting employment opportunities in the US and beyond.  Textiles are used in everything from clothing to protective gear, health care, personal hygiene, automobiles, construction, engineered materials, home furnishings, and more. Today’s textile industry is “high tech”, innovative, and critical to meeting the challenges of our world.

The robust world of textiles encompasses design, science, and business. If you can imagine a career involved in anything from color chemistry to industrial design, robotics, fashion and more, then you owe it to yourself to consider studying textiles at NC State and exploring this scholarship!
