Scholarship History

Established December 12, 1955, by bequest from Janie G. S. Taliaferro of Washington, D. C., in memory of her husband, Dr. Thomas Hardy Taliaferro. The income is to be used to provide scholarship assistance to worthy students at UMCP. Dr. Taliaferro, the first President of the University of Florida (1901-04), joined the University of Maryland faculty in 1906 and subsequently served as Dean of the College of Engineering, Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, and Dean of the Faculty prior to his retirement in 1941. Taliaferro Hall is named for him at UMCP.
