Alberta A. Taylor Scholarship
The Alberta A. Taylor Scholarship provides a one-time award to a junior or senior student majoring in economics and/or political science.
Completed applications are evaluated using donor criteria and College of Letters & Science criteria (academic excellence, community service, leadership, diversity, strength of character, and creative accomplishment). Successful applicants should also have strong recommendations and well written essays. In addition, scholarships with a financial need component require a completed FAFSA form on file with UW-Madison. Students who are not current recipients of Letters & Science multi-year scholarships are given priority. Students must be in and maintain good standing and full-time enrollment in the College of Letters & Science.
The donor established this scholarship in memory of his mother, Alberta Taylor, who graduated in 1939 with a BA in Economics and in 1941 with a MA in Political Science.
