The Davidson Institute for Talent Development provides financial assistance (FA) to families who demonstrate financial need for THINK. FA may be available to help defer a portion of tuition, room & board, and/or transportation expenses. Please keep in mind that the Davidson Institute has seen an increase in the number of families applying and qualifying for financial assistance; therefore, we must prioritize the distribution of funds we have available to assist families. Davidson Institute financial assistance awards never cover 100% of any expense.
Should your family need FA to attend the program, please complete the Financial Assistance Application concurrently with the Davidson THINK Summer Institute application.
If you are a returning student and/or a Davidson Young Scholar who already has a FA application on file, please contact our Financial Assistance Coordinator at FAC@DavidsonGifted.org.
Additional assistance may be obtainable through these national and state scholarships. Gifted associations or local business may also provide financial support or sponsorships to community members. Contact information for specific state gifted associations can be found here.
