The Texas Tech University String Project was established in 2001 in part with the National String Project Consortium and the American String Teachers Association. The program was initially funded by a three-year grant from the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education with matching contributions from Texas Tech. Currently, the program is funded by student fees and contributions by Texas Tech University. Our TTU site was named the American String Teachers Association 2019-2020 National String Project Consortium String Project of the Year!
