2021 TAM Scholarships Awarded

Humanities Tennessee offers a scholarship program for the Tennessee Association of Museums’ (TAMannual conference held every March. This initiative stems from our commitment to provide opportunities for professional and organizational development of Tennessee’s museums and their humanities programming.

The scholarships are available to volunteers without museum-related backgrounds who work for a nonprofit museum or organization that is starting a museum, and that has no paid professional staff. Each scholarship provides two nights lodging and conference registration fees for up to two people from each applicant organization.

The following volunteers received scholarships from Humanities Tennessee for the 2021 virtual conference:

  • Ann Davis & Brooke Marshal, McMinn Co. Living Heritage Museum (Athens)
  • Jill Jones-Lazuka & Barbara Langley, Morgan Co. Genealogical & Historical Society (Wartburg)
