Financial Support

The TJSHS will provide lodging and meals during the conference for no more than five students and the teacher mentor/chaperone from each high school selected to attend. In addition, the TJSHS will provide round trip mileage reimbursement from the school to Knoxville, Tennessee, for one vehicle from each school selected to attend on a need basis. Unfortunately, our budget cannot support reimbursement for airfare.

Limited funds are available for substitutes to cover the classrooms of teacher/chaperones selected to attend TJSHS and are not guaranteed, but are given are given based on need. Invoices from the school must be submitted to the University of TN-TJSHS and mailed to 1534 White Ave., Knoxville, TN 37996-1529. Requests/Invoices will be honored and paid based on needs.

In accordance with the terms of our grant funding and fiscal policy, we require that claims for reimbursement of round trip mileage to attend the TJSHS 2020 event and reimbursement for substitute teachers (if applicable) be submitted for payment to the TJSHS office within six weeks of the end of the program. For the 2020 program, reimbursement requests must be submitted no later than April 17, 2020; reimbursement requests received after this date will not be paid.
