Financial aid to support a 4-year college education will be awarded on an annual basis to at least one student from the state of Virginia who embodies all the good for which D.A. stood - a scholarship to a state school for an area child of a public servant. As the Foundation grows, so will our ability to touch more lives and promise greater education and opportunity.
The scholarship will be administered and managed logistically by the Norfolk Foundation (norfolkfoundation.com) in Norfolk, VA, under the following guidelines as written by the Board of the D.A. Taylor Foundation:
The late D.A. Taylor believed that the best way for an individual to improve him or herself is to obtain a well-rounded education, preparing each person to become a productive member of society who could make lasting and positive contributions to his or her community. In memory of D.A. Taylor, the purpose of the fund shall be to provide scholarships for students attending high schools in South Hampton Roads who are in need of financial aid for post-secondary education at a four-year college or university. An applicant should display the qualities exhibited by D.A. Taylor, such as strong leadership and academic abilities, involvement in extra curricular activities, a commitment to helping others, and overall excellence inside and outside of the classroom.
