COVID-19 UPDATE March 13, 2020 1:20 p.m. : In response to the announcement from President Fitts, Taylor will follow recommendations outlined by the university.
For the current funding process, Taylor will continue to review applications as normal but will not disburse funds until the university lifts its policy on non-essential travel and in-person classes.
Therefore, experiences that will occur between March 15 to May 17 will not be funded unless it is a virtual/online experience.
Furthermore, funding disbursements for summer opportunities will only occur once Tulane has amended its policies related to travel and classes.
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.
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.
