Exciting Opportunity for Missouri Teachers in Title One Schools

List Serve Message Date:  April 24, 2009

If you are a teacher or counselor in a Title One school, you are eligible to apply for a Mary Frasier scholarship to pay your expenses to attend the National Gifted Education Convention to be held in St. Louis on November 5-8, 2009.  The primary purpose of the Javits-Frasier Teacher Scholarship Fund for Diverse Talent Development is to increase culturally and linguistically diverse students' access to talent development opportunities through teacher and school counselor/psychologist training and support related to equity and excellence in gifted education.

NAGC recognizes the vital role that educators play in identifying and developing gifts and talents in today's diverse student body and supports nationwide efforts to provide training to ensure highly qualified educators in every classroom.  In addition, NAGC values equity and excellence and is committed to developing leaders who can effectively advocate for historically under-represented groups.  Therefore, this scholarship program seeks to identify passionate, innovative educators in communities across the country where students from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds are historically under-represented in gifted programs. Educators from racially and ethnically diverse backgrounds are especially encouraged to apply.
