Taubman Scholars

The endowment that provides the Taubman scholarships was created in 1999 with the transformative naming gift from benefactor and namesake, A. Alfred Taubman. The gift is the largest ever to a school of architecture and planning. The endowment has supported 912 students, including the 35 scholars this year.

On December 7, 2012 Taubman Scholars gathered to thank Mr. Taubman at a lunch at the Michigan Union. Mr. Taubman’s exceptional gift makes a lasting difference in the lives of the student recipients. This merit-based aid is an expression of confidence in the students, a belief in their abilities to make a difference, and recognition that provision of support is a sound investment in our collective future.
