The Normandy Scholars Program is an interdisciplinary honors program open to students from all majors at the University of Tennessee. The goal of the Program is to study World War II in the wider context of memory studies, a discipline that examines how social, cultural, political, and technological shifts affect how societies react to and commemorate past conflicts in their national histories. Students apply for the program in the fall, spend the spring semester working with faculty from a wide range of disciplines, and attend a study-abroad mini-session program in France and Germany. All students receive a scholarship of $3,000 to help cover the cost of the mini-session study tour (additional scholarships may be available from the students' home departments, the Programs Abroad Office, and other sources).
The next Normandy Scholars group will be chosen during fall semester 2017, and will do coursework in spring 2018 to prepare for a mini-session study-abroad program.
