Last Chance to Apply for an STS Grant for Your School!

From Julia Stark,

Last chance to apply for an STS grant for your school! The Tennessee Arts Commission’s Student Ticket Subsidy grant program is currently still accepting applications from schools in your district for projects occurring before May 24, 2024. Applicants should submit an application by April 24th. Schools that have already received an STS grant not exceeding $3,000, may apply for additional funding!

Schools can apply for up to $3,000 for arts-related field trips or in-school residencies facilitated by professional artists or organizations on the Commission’s Teaching Artist Roster during the school day. Funding can cover artist/ticket fees and/or transportation costs.

There is a streamlined application process that is easily accessible and relatively quick for school administrators and teachers, and we hope that you will share this information with anyone who might be interested in providing opportunities for students in your school to learn in and through the arts.

Next steps for applicants:
