Scholarships for MCGT Events

MCGT Membership and Event Scholarships

Financial assistance is available from the Betty Johnson Scholarship Fund: Families with gifted and talented children should not be restricted in their participation in MCGT activities because of limited funds. The Betty Johnson Scholarship Fund provides scholarships for gifted youth or parents of gifted children to attend events sponsored by MCGT, such as the annual conference or speakers. MCGT also accepts requests for financial assistance for MCGT membership fees. Betty Johnson impacted the lives of so many gifted children and families, and the scholarship is designed to honor her tradition of helping families find the right educational options at the right time.

Hormel Symposium Parent Day Scholarships

The Betty Johnson Scholarship Fund also allows MCGT to provide scholarships for parents to attend Parent Day at the Hormel Symposium each year. Scholarships include registration fees and a gas card to help with travel. More information about Hormel Symposium Parent Day can be found at
