Standing Together in Tennessee Project Update

Humanities Tennessee is conducting a year-long, multi-format set of programs under the "Standing Together" initiative, which uses the humanities to foster veterans' communication of their experience of war and re-assimilation, and civilians' comprehension of those experiences.  These programs will engage Tennesseans in exploring our roles and responsibilities in service to each other and our nation.

We are pleased to invite applications to our 2015 Grant Program for projects that involve diverse communities to further the mutual understanding of the history, experience, and meaning of war, military service, and the return to civilian life.

Welcome are a wide range of project formats and humanities disciplines for public programs that explore war and its aftermath, the promote discussion and understanding of the experiences of Americans affiliated with the armed services, and that have a clear potential to engage Tennessee's veterans and their families.

Humanities Tennessee encourages applicants to seek funding for these projects through our General Grant Program.  For guidelines and deadlines, please visit:
