Scholarship Program

The Independent Textile Rental Association is committed to promoting and advancing professionals in the textiles services industry. To demonstrate this commitment, ITRA awards one $2,500 scholarship annually to help fund the continuing education of an ITRA Member (Active or Associate) or their employee. One scholarship will be awarded per year but past recipients may re-apply each year as they continue through a program. Applicants will fit the following criteria to apply for the scholarship:

  • Applicant must be an employee or immediate family of an employee of an ITRA Member in good standing.
  • Enrolled in a two- or four-year accredited college.

Application Process

Completed applications should be mailed in advance to the ITRA office where they will then be forwarded to the Scholarship Committee for review no later than February 28, 2020 for the 2020 Fall session. Interviews will be conducted if necessary and the successful candidate will be announced at the annual ITRA Mid Year Conference. All other applicants will be notified by email after the Mid Year Conference. Funds for the scholarship will be dispersed directly to the educational program (“third party pay”).
