Taylor Marceau Scholarship



Based on “Best Practices” for scholarship awards the TAAE Scholarship Committee requires the following of
STAFF AND STUDENT applications for the TAAE Taylor Marceau Scholarship Awards:

  1. The staff at each school facility knows their students better than TAAE ever will.
    • Therefore, school staff consensus nominations of 1 to 3 total scholarship applicant students should be the first step in assuring a worthy pool of TAAE scholarship applicants.
    • Also, a staff consensus nomination can serve as an honor for every student nominated, regardless of who is awarded a scholarship.
  2. Staff Members: Students are unlikely to use a scholarship if they cannot:
    • Articulate a goal and the essential elements of a plan to reach that goal;
    • Identify a support system to help them implement their plan.
    • Complete their FAFSA; and
    • Complete a college or trade school application
  3. Personal histories focusing on the student’s challenges & achievements shall provide distinguishing flexibility for the application process.
  4. Names of Nominating School Staff & Contact Emails and phone numbers:
