COVID-19 UPDATE February 22, 2021 3:00 p.m. : Per university guidelines, Taylor cannot fund experiences that break public health guidelines or university policies related to COVID-19.
Per the Tulane travel ban on international destinations, Tulane funding cannot be awarded to students for international travel without the approval of the Office of the Provost. Any student that requests an exception to the international travel policy must fill out this petition form, which will be reviewed by the Office of the Provost and Newcomb-Tulane College.
The Taylor Center awards financial support to assist Tulane students and faculty in their development as changemakers.
- Taylor funding is an opportunity for Tulane students and faculty to learn from and work collaboratively with effective changemakers and allies to better understand social and environmental problems.
- While funding is used to support activities such as conference attendance, research, internships, and more, the primary goal of the Taylor funding is to spread awareness of changemaker pedagogy and support experiential learning of fields related to social innovation, social entrepreneurship, changemaking and design thinking for social impact.
- Most students use an award to fund changemaking internships or volunteer opportunities, engage in an in-depth field immersion experience, or attend a conference or workshop that helps them develop as a changemaker.
