If a course is terminated during the session, SIG will consider the circumstances and may, in its sole discretion, issue a partial refund or credit. Under no circumstances, medical or otherwise, will SIG refund the application fee due at the time the application is submitted for courses in session. Refunds are not provided once the course begins.

If parents are interested in a refund during the session for other concerns, please refer to the Program Director.

Need-Based Financial Assistance

SIG, along with the support of additional donors, is pleased to be able to offer financial assistance to some students who wish to attend our program and ask that you please read the following information carefully before applying for financial assistance from SIG.

Availability of SIG financial assistance varies by campus and is not intended to cover the total cost of the student’s attendance at SIG.

Financial assistance awards serve as the final payment on your account and are not attributed until all other fees are paid. You must continue to adhere to the SIG payment schedule while you are awaiting our decision. Financial assistance is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.

To qualify for assistance, you must send a completed SIG program application and include the non-refundable SIG application fee. Applicants need to be accepted into the program before financial assistance applications are reviewed.

Please check back periodically for updates and information on financial assistance, scholarship opportunities, and fundraising ideas.

 

We are no longer accepting financial assistance applications for 2020 Innovators/Investigators/Online Programs.

The Importance of Gifted Education

As many school districts across the country face tight budgets and funding cuts, gifted education programs are suffering reduction or elimination. As this trend continues, an increasing number of gifted children are not receiving sufficient guidance to maximize their full potential through school programs. In addition to continuous advocacy, there is now an unprecedented need for dynamic and innovative approaches for supplementing the education of our world’s most gifted, talented, and creative students. The unique, targeted, and experienced curriculum of the SIG program provides your students with the ideal educational complement, ensuring that they receive the individual attention they require.
