Taylor Student Fellows are paraprofessionals. Fellows are more than the usual student worker and are responsible for creating and implementing Taylor programming and outreach. Student Fellows must be comfortable working at a fast pace and must possess the initiative necessary to thrive within ambiguity and in dynamic environments.

Come meet this year’s fellows to learn more about the fellowships on Monday or Tuesday, March 13th or 14th from 5-7 pm at Taylor. Snacks will be served!
