Supporting Teachers who Champion Diversity: The NAGC Javits Frasier Scholarship
from by Dina Brulles and Kim Lansdowne
Gifted students in poverty, and those from other underrepresented populations, need champions at their schools who advocate for their educational opportunities. NAGC supports these individuals through the Javits Frasier Scholarship Program. The ultimate goal of the scholarship is to increase access to talent development opportunities for all students through educator training. The scholarship program provides educators a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to discover how their knowledge, supported by training and a strong commitment, can make a difference in the lives of children and impact the future of our nation. Of necessity, we must identify and help educate those most likely to impact historically underserved groups in their home schools.
