On Wednesday, May 31, 2017, from 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm, Washington, DC time, OAI will host a public webinar for those interested in applying to the 2017 Jacob K. Javits Gifted and Talented Students Education (Javits) Program. See Technical Assistance Webinar for Applicants below for more information.
The Javits program supports evidence-based research, demonstration projects, innovative strategies, and similar activities designed to build and enhance the ability of elementary and secondary schools nationwide to identify gifted and talented students and meet their special educational needs. The major emphasis of the program is on serving students traditionally underrepresented in gifted and talented programs, particularly economically disadvantaged, limited English proficient (LEP), and disabled students, to help reduce the serious gap in achievement among certain groups of students at the highest levels of achievement. The competition supports initiatives to develop and scale up models serving students who are underrepresented in gifted and talented programs. The application deadline for Javits is June 22, 2017. The expected date for announcing awards is September 30, 2017.
