Javits-Frasier Scholarship Application

Selected candidates will attend the NAGC annual convention and participate in activities focusing on the fundamentals of gifted education with an emphasis on working with underserved populations. Upon completion of the program, candidates will complete a short “project” exhibiting their understanding of the issues addressed.
