Patrick F. Taylor believed that any student with drive could “become somebody.” As a scholarship recipient himself, Taylor didn’t just believe in the concept of “paying it forward” – he lived it. To date, the Patrick F. Taylor Foundation has dedicated approximately $5 million in scholarships to students to attend colleges and universities throughout the United States.
The Patrick F. Taylor Foundation provides individual scholarships and grants to deserving Louisiana high school students attending two-year and four-year Louisiana undergraduate institutions, based on financial need and academic performance. These individual scholarships are administered by the Foundation upon the recommendation of the Patrick F. Taylor Foundation Education Committee and approval by the Patrick F. Taylor Foundation Board of Trustees. Scholarship amounts range from $500 to $2,500 per semester.The Foundation is no longer accepting scholarship applications for the Fall 2021 semester. We have reached our maximum number for Fall 2021. For information about the next scholarship review cycle, please check the website in October.
Scholarship application forms will be e-mailed on an individual basis directly to students. In order for the applicant to be considered, the Scholarship Application Consent Form must be submitted with the scholarship application and signed by both the student applicant and a parent/guardian. Our Education Committee reviews scholarship applications before the Fall and Spring semesters only. As a general rule, the Patrick F. Taylor Foundation does not offer individual scholarship assistance for elementary, high school, out-of-state undergraduate, or graduate programs.
