Taylor Scholars Award Program
Hard work in the classroom is yielding great rewards outside of school, thanks to a special program created by the Patrick F. Taylor Foundation. The Taylor Scholars Awards Programs were created to offer “early scholars,” Louisiana middle and high school students, opportunities for educational and cultural enrichment.
Taylor/Audubon Students and Scholars Program
The Patrick F. Taylor Foundation has dedicated over $900,000 to the Taylor/Audubon Students and Scholars Program. The endowment has established programs with the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas and the Audubon Zoo and allowed them to continue in perpetuity. Eligible students earn a one-year membership to the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas and the Audubon Zoo for achieving a 2.5 grade point average or higher. The program is open to all Louisiana students in grades 6 through 12, whether attending public, private, or parochial schools. Two guests may accompany students free of charge and free admission for the Taylor Scholars and up to four guests on Taylor Family Free Day.
Taylor/NOMA Scholars Program
The Taylor/New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA) Scholars Program provides students a chance to experience the collections of the region’s preeminent fine arts institution as an award for their academic excellence. The Patrick F. Taylor Foundation established the Taylor/NOMA Scholars Program through a $360,000 endowment designed to guarantee the program in perpetuity. All public, private, and parochial students who complete the school year with at least a 2.5 grade point average are eligible to receive a free one-year membership to the New Orleans Museum of Art. Two guests may accompany students free of charge and free admission is provided for Taylor Scholars and up to four guests on Taylor Family Free Day.
