The Gifted and Talented State Grant program provides grant funds for supplemental financial assistance to school districts to strengthen the quality of programs for gifted and talented students. The Gifted and Talented E-Grant is a two year grant. School systems receive state funding to supplement their gifted and talented programs each year, based on their application and the local district gifted and talented education plan required under ARM 10.55.804, with approval based on successful completion of the application. Grants are awarded according to a formula determined by the size and number of applicant school systems, the amount of their matching funds (required by law) and the funds provided to the program by the legislature.
The Gifted and Talented State Grant is administered through an application process through E-Grants.
Please see the Gifted and Talented Funding Flier for ways to use both the Gifted and Talented Grant and Title IV-A funding.
