Helping Gifted Families Soar

Our program is free to profoundly gifted students and their families and gives them the opportunity to connect and engage in a community that understands their needs.

The Davidson Young Scholars program application is available online through our digital application system. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis during the January-November application cycle.

The 2023 application is open and available. Please note: The 2023 application will close on November 3. Any applications that are incomplete at 11:59 pm (Pacific) on November 3, 2023 will not be eligible for review.
