There are 30 grants available; 15 for third year students and 15 for fourth year students.

The Institute has launched the “AITEX Scientific Campus” to support and encourage young people to study scientific and technical qualifications with applications in the textile industry. The idea is to give students hands-on experience in science and its use in problem solving in various fields of research and innovation, as well as promoting coexistence among students from different teaching centres.

The Campus will take place at the AITEX facilities in Alcoy, from June 24 to July 5, 2019, in two 5-day sessions, from Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.: third and fourth-year students from around the central regions of the Valencian Community will be able to participate in the program.
