TN Arts Student Ticket Subsidy

The Tennessee Arts Commission Student Ticket Subsidy (STS) grant program provides provides funds for artist fees, ticket costs, and transportation fees for students from Tennessee public schools to experience a broad variety of cultural opportunities, arts disciplines, and artists. Teachers can take children on field-trips to shows or exhibits or bring a teaching artist into their school.

In addition to arts appreciation events, allowable activities include arts curriculum and arts integration residencies of more than one day that provide students hands-on participation in an art form. The projects must include a supplemental activity like a field trip or school-wide assembly to ensure that many students have access to high quality professional arts and cultural experiences.

Schools may apply for a maximum of $3,000 per fiscal year. Funding for STS is allocated per county according to school age population and by demand. STS applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis until all funds are expended. Applications must be received a minimum of 30 days prior to the start of the proposed event.

Since 2010, the program has given the opportunity to more than 500,000 students to experience the arts.
