2011 TAGT Summer Scholarships for Students

January 11, 2011

TAGT Summer Scholarships are designed for those gifted and talented students who wish to attend academic or artistic programs during the summer months. Gifted students, grades K-12, may apply for scholarships of up to $400. Applications are reviewed by a committee assembled by TAGT.  Each application is scored by the committee.  The highest-scoring elementary student and secondary student applicants are chosen as Ann Shaw Scholars and receive $500 each. Application deadline is March 1, 2011. All applicants will be notified of their status by April 15. Scholarship winners must complete and return the necessary paperwork by June 15 or the award will be forfeited. Please note that for accounting purposes, scholarship checks are made payable to both the program and the scholarship winner.

One graduating gifted and talented high school senior is awarded the Adelle McClendon Young Leader Scholarship, a university scholarship of $2,500. The winner of this annual award must demonstrate outstanding leadership. Application deadline is March 1. The scholarship recipient will be notified by April 15.

Another graduating gifted and talented high school senior is awarded the Laura Allard Future Vision Scholarship, a university scholarship of $2,500. This award is given to a student who has demonstrated outstanding academic achievement, possesses a strong sense of purpose and clearly defined goals, and has a long-term plan for achieving these goals. Application deadline is March 1. The scholarship recipient will be notified by April 15.

The Nicholas Green Distinguished Student Award was established in 1999 by the National Association for Gifted Children.  Funded by the Nicholas Green Foundation, these awards are designed to recognize excellence in young children.  The awards, which include a certificate and a $500 U.S. Savings Bond, will be made in every state to a student who is between grades 3 and 6 who has distinguished him or herself in academics, leadership, or the arts.
