VAG was founded in 1977 to support gifted education. We publish a quarterly newsletter; organize a statewide conference in odd numbered years; organize a statewide seminar in even numbered years; support research in gifted education; support specialized professional preparation for educators of the gifted; and recognize outstanding educators for their contributions to gifted learners. Membership is open to individuals who are interested in education of the gifted.
The Virginia Association for the Gifted will present up to five Grants for Innovative Ideas, each in the amount of $400 to individuals or teams whose proposed projects support the goals of VAG and directly services gifted students. The applications must be postmarked on or before November 24, 2014. Please click here for the application.
