Your Support Matters!

A world of Possibilities: Gifts, Talents, & Potential

As a world organization, our mission is to include as many people as we can from around the globe in our membership and activities. But that is not always possible, especially when some of our gifted children and the dedicated parents and teachers that serve them are in remote areas of the world where educational and technological resources are scarce.

All donations to the WCGTC enhance our ability to make our activities as inclusive and international as possible. Donations to the World Council for Gifted and Talented Children support our ongoing operations and provide free memberships and conference scholarships to our neediest individuals in the field of gifted education. See some of the testimonies from previous recipients below.

If you are already a member or thinking about becoming one, consider giving at one of our higher levels of contribution- Silver, Gold, and Platinum. These additional fees support our ongoing operations and go towards complimentary memberships and our scholarship fund. The scholarship fund supports individuals to attend the World Conference who otherwise would be unable to attend. Click here for more information about scholarships.

The conference program was very diverse and rich. I have gained knowledge of all the narrow and broad areas of my interests: identification, social-emotional issues, creativity, STEAM etc. The warm and open atmosphere of the conference provided an opportunity to interact with the authors and discuss the topic in more detail.

Receiving a Graduate Student Scholarship to attend the 23rd World Conference was a gift. It introduced me to fellow graduate students who share similar intentions toward advocacy, policy and change. It afforded me academic feedback regarding my initial research findings. It introduced me to professionals who possess broad perspectives about how we practice and support gifted education world-wide. In conclusion, the scholarship elevated my passion to further continue my lifelong studies in the field of gifted education.

It was such a great pleasure to be able to discuss and learn about Gifted and Talented with people that have same interest and passion about it....Learning there are some similar problems related with Gifted and Talented in many countries raised the awareness to collaborate and contribute in solving the problems together.

Thanks to the World Council scholarship, I was able to attend the World Conference in Odense, Denmark. This was a big surprise for me because the World Conference was a great chance to learn a lot from the teachers, experts, academics, and even students from all over the world. I had a great time chatting about building cooperation for innovative international projects and deciding new research on gifted education with invaluable people.
