TAG Scholarship Winners!
Each year, TAG is pleased to offer scholarships to Tennessee's gifted students for educational programs that provide enrichment, acceleration, or independent study. The TAG scholarship provides up to 85% of the total program fee with a maximum award of $500.00 per scholarship recipient. Each applicant submitted an application, an essay, a program brochure, two letters of recommendation, and a teacher recommendation form.
After careful review of all complete applications, TAG is excited to recognize this year's scholarship winners! Each winner will send us a summary and highlights of their experiences after they have attended their programs, so stay tuned for more!
Congratulations to these amazing students!
The TALENT Act expands the education debate by focusing on gifted, high-ability students—particularly those from low-income or minority backgrounds—who have been overshadowed in a U.S. educational system that focuses on its struggling, low-achieving students.
