Each year, the James T. Webb Scholarship provides an opportunity for one, identified gifted and talented student, and their legal guardian or parent, to attend SENG's annual conference.

SENG's Youth Forum is an environment in which students ages 11-18 can have fun while learning new skills, exploring new places, and engaging in activities with other gifted youth from across the nation and other countries. Activities are designed to meet their special interests and needs, with an emphasis on social interaction and fun. Parents attend the conference, networking with other parents and GT/2E professionals. The James T. Webb Scholarship provides funding to SENG to cover the registration and some meals to one youth and their chaperone, each year.
