Normandy Scholars is an interdisciplinary program open to undergraduate students from all majors at the University of Tennessee. The goal is to study the legacies of World War II and other conflicts through the lens of memory studies, a discipline that examines how social, cultural, political, and technological shifts affect the ways societies react to and commemorate past conflicts in their national histories. The program includes a 3-hour spring semester class and a mini-session study-abroad trip to relevant sites in Europe. All students receive a scholarship intended exclusively to help cover the cost of the mini-session study tour.
The Normandy Scholars Program is on hiatus during the 2022–23 academic year and will return in Fall 2023.
