Scholarships to USA teachers, school psychologists, and school counselors working in Title I schools to participate in a unique professional development opportunity. Applications are invited from professionals who are committed to helping gifted children from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. Recipients must attend a conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico in November.

The primary purpose of the Javits-Frasier Scholarship Fund for Diverse Talent Development is to increase culturally and linguistically diverse students’ access to talent development opportunities through educator training and support related to equity and excellence in gifted education. Scholarship recipients will also serve in the critical role of being catalysts for change in the attitudes and perceptions some educators have historically held which have impeded the full development of potential in culturally and linguistically diverse students.

NAGC recognizes the vital role that teachers and counselors play in identifying and developing gifts and talents in today’s diverse student body and supports nation-wide efforts to provide training to ensure highly qualified teachers and counselors in every school. In addition, NAGC values equity and excellence and is committed to developing leaders who can effectively advocate for historically underrepresented groups. Therefore, this scholarship program seeks to identify passionate, innovative teachers and counselors in communities across the country where students from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds are historically underrepresented in gifted programs.
