Todd Taylor Local Internship Scholarship
The Todd Taylor Local Internship Scholarship was established at the University of Utah to reward highly dedicated interns who embody Todd Taylor’s work ethic, dedication and passion for politics. Taylor passed away in 2012 while serving as the longest-tenured state political party executive director in the nation. He is remembered as “a true renaissance man” with a passion for national and local politics, a near photographic memory, encyclopedic knowledge of Utah politics, a sharp wit, and personal authenticity that is widely missed.
