The Textile Research Institute of Princeton, N.J. has announced the establishment of two participating fellowships during recent weeks. The first, sponsored by the Carbide and Carbon Chemicals Corporation, is for the study of static electricity in textile fibers; the second, established by the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company, is for research in the two‐dimensional stress‐strain properties of airship type fabrics. The Institute's participating fellowship plan permits the donor to suggest a field of fundamental research to be undertaken by a graduate student supported by the fellowship. If the suggested field is accepted by the Institute as suitable in the light of its general program of long‐range textile research, the participating fellowship is set up for a period of two years. The fellowship donation is $5000 per year, which covers stipend, tuition, supervision, apparatus, and laboratory overhead costs.
