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 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.
