Student Ticket Subsidy
Student Ticket Subsidy Funds are no longer available for 2012 / 2013
Student Ticket Subsidy (STS) is a program funded by the Tennessee General Assembly and administered through the Tennessee Arts Commission. The program exists to provide ticket subsidy funds to public schools for arts and cultural experiences to encourage schools to expose Tennessee students to a broad variety of cultural experiences, arts disciplines and artists.
Schools may apply for a maximum of $3,000 per fiscal year. Funding for STS is allocated per capita per county. STS applications are accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis until all funds are expended. Applications must be received a minimum of 30 days prior to the start of the project. For more information view the Student Ticket Subsidy Grant Guidelines. Schools must have two signatures on the Assurances page that must sent in with your application.
