Taylor Gifts $1000 Academic Scholarship


Congrats to 2014 Taylor Gift Academic Scholarship Winner: Morgan L! 


Taylor Gifts would like to thank all the promissing young minds who particiapated in the inagural Taylor Gifts Academic Scholarship. We were overwhelmed by the tremendous participation the scholarship received.  Check back June 2015 for details for a possible future scholarship.  


Below are the rules for the 2014 scholarship.  These may change for our 2015 scholarship contest.  


Taylor Gifts is all about nurturing the young, creative minds of today so they can yield the fantastical creations of tomorrow. After all, ingenious (and delicious) inventions like the Bacon Bowl and Vegetti were once pipedreams before patience and hard work made them a reality. Therefore, Taylor Gifts is pleased to announce the inaugural Taylor Gifts $1000 Academic Scholarship!

There are just a few requirements to keep in mind before the real fun begins:

  • To enter the scholarship contest you must be a freshman, sophomore or junior currently enrolled in a university within the United States.
  • The Taylor Gifts $1000 Academic Scholarship is also open to high school seniors in the United States.
  • One essay submission per student.
  • Each essay must be 750-800 words. No more, no less.

We will provide some prompts for you to select to write an essay about.  Answer the prompt you select with all you’ve got in 750-800 words. Muster up your creativity and problem-solving skills to potentially earn this $1,000 scholarship!

Here’s how the winner will be chosen:

The top semi-finalists of the Taylor Gifts essay competition will be picked by a select panel of judges. These judges will consider creativity, style, grammar, spelling, concision and how well the student has stuck to the topic they picked. Once they’re chosen, online voting will begin.

This means that the ultimate winner will be determined by you, the public. An online voting system will be established so friends and strangers alike can cast a ballot for the essay that inspired them.

Scholarship Payout Details

The scholarship will be paid to the school of the selected recipient in a one-time amount of $1,000.00. The scholarship funds will be made payable to the winning student’s university by Taylor Gifts’ CEO, Francis Ruthkosky, sent specifically to the Financial Aid Office and placed in the student’s account.

Before the scholarship can be officially awarded, the winning student must provide Taylor Gifts with:

  • Written proof of enrollment at an accredited university, college or institution within the United States.
  • The address of the school’s Financial Aid Office.
  • His or her student ID number.
