Scholarship Application 

The Tennessee Arts Academy offers scholarships for deserving educators who wish to attend TAA. There are currently four scholarships being offered. They are as follows:


Tennessee Arts Academy Foundation Scholarship 
Country Music Association (CMA) Foundation Scholarship
TAA Foundation (TAAF) Theatre Arts Scholarship 
The Dorothy M. Gillespie Tennessee Arts Academy Visual Art Scholarship

All scholarships are on one easy to use, fillable form that can be saved. All applicants are required to complete the Tennessee Arts Academy Foundation Scholarship section of the application first. Once you have completed the TAA Foundation Scholarship section, you will find instructions should you wish to apply for additional content specific scholarships. Please read the guidelines carefully for each scholarship before applying in order to make sure you qualify. Applying for one of the three specialized scholarships will not impact your chances to receive a TAAF Scholarship; however, you will only be selected for one of the specialized scholarships OR the TAAF Scholarship (whichever is largest). PLEASE NOTE: The Tennessee Arts Academy will not accept scholarship applications until you have 1) applied for the Arts Academy; and 2) have submitted your signed TAA Online Acceptance documents.
