The Wells Scholar program will include a full ride-plus: full tuition, room and board, academic fees and books, a full year of academic study abroad, and automatic admission to the Hutton Honors College.
Taylor plans to double major in International Studies and Law and Public Policy with a minor in Arabic. His career plans include becoming an international human rights lawyer and a United States diplomat.
