Jacob Javits Gifted & Talented Student Education Program Partnership

The federal Jacob K. Javits grant program focuses resources on identifying and serving traditionally underserved students in gifted and talented (GT) programs, particularly minority, economically disadvantaged, English learners, and students with disabilities, to help reduce achievement gaps and to encourage the establishment of equal educational opportunities for all students. 

The Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) invites Maryland Local Education Agencies (LEAs) to partner with MSDE to provide services and programming to address one or more of the four state-identified areas of need regarding gifted and talented programs. 

Please see the Scope of Work and Application Form for a complete list of all requirements.
