Every year, TNNA offers two $1000 scholarships for the purpose of higher
education in the study of fiber arts or business to members’ children or
children of members’ employees.
The scholarship was created to encourage and support TNNA members and their
children to continue their education. Students are evaluated based on
academics, extracurricular activities, test scores and recommendations. All
applicants must be enrolled in an accredited educational institution.
This year, the deadline is April 1st . . . just around the corner.

This is just one of the ways TNNA is supporting our industry’s future. The
association’s internship program (PiPN), provides
opportunities for students, whether or not they are related to TNNA members or
member employees, to experience an on-site placement with one of TNNA member
companies. After completing the PiPN program, participants are encouraged to
join the PiPN Alumnae Group which provides them with a two year, TNNA student
membership. This enables them to attend TNNA trade shows, take classes at
member rates, and access Member only web site areas and articles.
2011 PiPN interns and apprentices will be announced within the coming
weeks. If you’re a student, or pre-professional, interested in participating,
don’t wait . . . apply now.
