The James T. Webb Scholarship currently extends the opportunity for identified gifted and talented students from minority populations and their parents to participate in the SENG Annual Conference. Students attend the program for children or teens. Parents attend concurrent adult sessions.

 

The SENG Children’s Program provides an environment in which kids ages 8-13 can have fun while learning new skills, exploring new places, and engaging in activities with other gifted children from across the nation and other countries.

 

The SENG Teen Program affords a unique experience to young people between the ages of 14-17 to establish new relationships with like-minded peers from across the United States and other countries. Activities are designed to meet their special interests and needs, with an emphasis on social interaction and fun.

 

In the future, SENG hopes to offer additional scholarship opportunities as funds are raised through the generosity of our donors.
