Humanities Tennessee Scholarships

Deadline:  To Be Announced Soon

Humanities Tennessee and the Tennessee Association of Museums (TAM) are pleased to announce our joint scholarship program for the 2020 TAM conference, to be held March 18-20, in Kingsport, TN. This initiative stems from our organizations’ commitment to provide opportunities for professional and organizational development of Tennessee’s museums and humanities community. Past conference sessions covered relevant topics such as collections care, exhibit design, and fundraising. The complete program will soon be available online.

Each scholarship provides two nights lodging at the hotel in Pickwick Landing, all meals provided by the conference, and conference registration fees. Scholarship recipients will be responsible only for their mileage, and an institutional TAM membership at a cost of $60.00.

The scholarships are available to volunteers without museum related backgrounds who work with a nonprofit museum or organization that is starting a museum. Organizations with paid, professionally trained staff are not eligible, nor are previous scholarship recipients. Preference will be given to applicants whose organizations are new to TAM.

Interested organizations must submit a simple application form in order to receive a scholarship. The application must be postmarked by TBA. Scholarships are available for two people from each organization.

For questions about scholarships or to receive an application form, please contact Melissa Davis at Humanities Tennessee by phone, 615-770-0006 x16, or by email, melissa@humanitiestennessee.org.

For questions about the conference, please contact Debbie Shaw, State Coordinator of TAM directly by phone, 615-495-3354, or email, tnmuseums@gmail.com.
