Stein Fibers, Ltd. is proud to have many graduates of the N.C. State Wilson College of Textiles employed by our company. Former students from the Textile Engineering, Polymer and Color Chemistry, Textile Technology, and Masters of Textiles programs are well represented.

Since the passing of our founder, Sidney J. Stein Jr., we have awarded The Sidney Stein Scholarship to a student(s) annually in the Wilson College of Textiles. The recipient(s) must be a currently enrolled student, studying to complete a degree in textiles.  Funding for the scholarship is provided by the Sidney J. Stein Jr. Fund at North Carolina State University. These funds provide students access to an extraordinary textile education.

This year’s recipients are Anna Stuffelbeam and Marissa Noon.

Anna is currently studying Fashion and Textile Design and hopes to work for a company in the sustainable fashion and textile industry.

Marissa is studying Textile Engineering and hopes to develop smart textiles that help optimize performance on athletes, physically disabled and injured people. With this research, Marissa wants to bridge the gap between medicine and science.

We congratulate these outstanding students and wish them the best throughout their time at the Wilson College of Textiles!
