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."
