The James T. Webb Scholarship currently extends the opportunity for identified gifted and talented students from culturally diverse populations and a parent to participate in the SENG Annual Conference. Students attend the program for children or teens. Parents attend concurrent general sessions. 

The SENG Youth Program provides an environment in which students ages 6-16 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. Activities are designed to meet their special interests and needs, with an emphasis on social interaction and fun.

The SENG Youth Program is made possible though the generosity of our donors.  If SENG has made a difference in your life, please consider making a difference to someone else’s.  

Support SENG with your tax deductible gift today.
