Posted in Preston All

The National Society for the Gifted and Talented (NSGT) is pleased to offer $10,000 in scholarships for Preston area students to apply towards selected summer programs.

Ten scholarships are being offered by the NSGT Board of Trustees - six at $1,000 each, six at $500 each and four at $250 each - and will be used by the deserving student to help pay tuition for gifted summer program of their choice. The deadline for applications is April 1, 2012.

Each year, the award is given to outstanding students who demonstrate excelled ability in their field of interest. Students can download and complete the scholarship application at www.nsgt.org/scholarships.asp. A team of educators in the field of gifted education will review the applications and choose the scholarship winners. Applications must be received by April 1, 2012. Winners will be notified on April 15, 2012.

The Summer Institute for the Gifted (SIG), a not-for-profit program of NSGT and renowned gifted summer program, has welcomed several recipients of the Board of Trustees Scholarships in the past. The NSGT scholarships have also afforded students the opportunity to participate in such programs as iDTech, the Cambridge College Program, Duke TIP, and Northwestern CTD, among others.

“SIG is delighted to work collaboratively with NSGT to help provide gifted students with extended opportunities to participate in programs that nurture and develop their abilities,” states Barbara Swicord, President and CEO of SIG. “With gifted education struggling in this country, supplemental programs like SIG - and subsequent scholarships - are more important than ever.”

Interested students, parents and educators can apply online at www.nsgt.org/scholarships.asp. Contact NSGT at (800) 572-6748 or by e-mail at info@nsgt.org.
