Each year, a portion of annual importer assessment collections are earmarked for programs that directly benefit importers of cotton products through the Importer Support Program (ISP). The ISP committee is made up of the importer members and alternates of The Cotton Board who work hard to help develop and oversee these programs that are implemented by Cotton Incorporated.
The flagship program of the ISP is Cotton University. Within Cotton University you will find information about a variety of ISP funded activities including our farm tours, how to sign up for education workshops or take an online course in denim finishing or knitting. We are also committed to investing in the future through scholarships and cotton competitions at the nation’s leading fashion and textiles schools that help influence and educate the next generation of fashion decision makers about the benefits of cotton.
