Scholarships to USA educators, school psychologists, and school counselors to participate in a professional development program. Applications are invited from professionals who are new to the field and are committed to helping gifted children from diverse backgrounds. Eligible applicants work in Title I schools. Educators from culturally, racially, and ethnically diverse backgrounds are especially encouraged to apply. Recipients are expected to attend the NAGC conference in Lake Buena Vista, Florida 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.

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. Criteria to determine recipients includes:

  • Solid evidence of desire and commitment to advocate for and develop the gifts and talents of culturally and linguistically diverse students.
  • Clear indication of potential to serve as an educational leader for culturally and linguistically diverse students in the school and community setting.
  • Strong capacity to become educationally productive in ways that meet the learning needs of gifted students from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.

Scholarship recipients receive professional development opportunities that include:

  • Travel stipend and hotel accommodations to attend along with complimentary registration the 2020 NAGC Annual Convention in, Lake Buena Vista, FL. 
  • Professional Mentor from the NAGC community
  • A full two-year membership in NAGC
  • Participation in Javits-Frasier Scholar 'roundtable' discussions with other scholars, members of the NAGC Diversity and Equity Committee, and NAGC leadership
